Great day for the first day of the Inter-Club League. Three tasks were set, and many launches (and relights) were taken. In the pundit class, Roy Wilson of Deeside claimed first place in the ASH31, being the only one to complete the task. Stuart Naylor of Fulmar came a very creditable second, flying a K6Cr. Deeside's Jonathon Morris completed the task in a Discus to win the intermediate class, and Fulmar's Matt Graeme-McMurdoch took the novice class with an out landing in Rothes Glen.

At the end of the day, Deeside lead with 254 points, followed by Fulmar with 202 and Scottish Gliding Union with 143.
