Important News Updates

Our 20th season has been simply delightful, with some fabulous runs, excellent hound work and of course the gala anniversary celebration was incredible.

We'll be wrapping up the season with Closing Hunt and a ridiculous themed breakfast on Saturday, March 30. For tips on attire for the breakfast, I suggest you rent the movie "Cowboys and Aliens," starring Daniel Craig, Olivia Wilde and Harrison Ford. Yes, we're serious.

Guests are always welcome, just let Phyllis Gonzales, honorary secretary, know, or reach Nancy Ambrosiano, board president. Fill out the liability release before you arrive, to save time, it's linked just below.

If you haven't signed on to this web site, you'll need to do so in order to download forms, see inside pages, etc. Just fill in the request and I'll get you approved ASAP! -- Nancy
