Important News Updates

 COVID-19 Safety Update

To our hunt compadres,
As you might expect, with the onset of COVID-19 restrictions for the good of us all, we are wrapping up the 2019-2020 formal season just a bit early. For their health and wellbeing, hounds will continue to go out with supervision (we hope), on Tuesdays at 1, Thursdays at 10 and Saturdays at 9 (that is 9 for now, soon to shift to 10).
If a member wishes to attend an exercise, they are requested to message Phyllis at 505-470-3952 the night before (so we know if we are pushing up against the "mass gathering" limit of 5 people). Dress for warmth and comfort (and keep your distance).
We look forward to a return to something more congenial at some point, but in the mean time we wish the best of health to you all and to your families.
