I don't know the 91st at Modder River, but the rest are great tunes.
You only need one jig for grade 2? I thought it was two but haven't played solos in a couple of years. When was the change?

Couldn't tell you when the change was Sean; but its only one. I used the Old Wife when i competed this year.
The tunes seems fine,; I'll admit I have no real affection for Susan MacLeod, but it seems appopriate to the Grade level.

We always played two here on the East Coast, two times through.
Maybe I only needed to submit one for Maxville? It's been awhile.

The EUSPBA requires two Jigs or Hornpipe & Jig (1&1). However, when I competed at Maxville two years ago, it was just one jig.

We've never had a Horpipe Jig for pipers here in Atlantic Canada.
I thought tune requirements were being standardized across North America?

Could you elaborate on you opinion for the 91st, gohabs? IS it above or below grade 2?

I meant I don't know the tune, so I can't help on whether it's above or below grade level.
The rest of the tunes look fine for grade 2.
