The leagues are finally up and running, and right from the off the top two from last year hit the top of the table.
Legion took 11 games from newly promoted Nomads, while the Golf Club had an impressive 11-1 win over the dangerous Untouchables 'A'.
The Arrows find themselves in the lofty heights of third place following a big win over Quoyburray 'B' and Sanday just nicked all three points from their clash with the Wanderers.
A share of the spoils was to be had between Untouchables and Warriors, a result which neither team would really have wanted to kick-start their season.
The Exiles took no time in taking pole position in the 'B' league, demolishing the Muppets en route.
The Young Loons look to have built on the last two years of experience and had a good win over the Vikings to take second spot.
RBL2 were just a little too clinical for the Tigers, while Quoyburray won by the narrowest of margins over Sanday 'B'.
Friday sees the first of this season's ranking points competitions, the Louttit Cup, take place in the Legion.
Competition for a place in the sides to face the West and Shetland near the end of the season is expected to be fiercer than previously, with an ever more dangerous group of youngsters emerging, as well as some new but experienced faces having joined the league. It should be an interesting night of darts.
