Default Hornpipe/Jig or Jig/Hornpipe?

I see it listed and played both ways. First competition offering it in Grade 3 out here coming up in June. My question is, are they just played in the order listed on the entry, or is there really a standard?

Calum nailed it. Hornpipe/Jig

Unless it is some unsanctioned contest and the piping director has specified it be the other way for some unknown reason. It happens. I'd check with the organizer to be certain.

And if that is the case I would play hornpipe then jig and then stare at them as if they were stupid, because they are

If you were playing outside a comp, just for fun or for friends, would you have a preference which way you played them?

For instance I prefer hornpipes so would probably play jig/hornpipe.

Any other thoughts... sorry for nicking the thread

For comp drummers, the jig is easier for intro rolls, and many bands used to play the jig first and end medleys with hornpipes. I prefer J/H, but it's always best to check with the local assoc. Some folks get weird about that sort of thing.

FWIW, just had a note from the organizer of the Modesto Games.

This (H/J in Grade 3) was actually a mistake, they are going to offer both Grade 3 Hornpipe and Jig as separate events.

Two seperate events for hornpipe and jig? I don't recall ever seeing that.

I've never seen it either, but WUSPBA allows organizers the option of offering more events than they typically do.

I didn't know it until I looked at the rule book, and I've never seen it above grade 3, but 6/8 March is a permissible event in all grades.

Modesto will offer both 2/4 and 6/8 in grade 4 as well.
