**************

Opening Meet

Due to the constraints imposed by the COVID pandemic, we are only inviting
members and landowners
to the hunt this year. This is disappointing to all of the
Oak Ridge Masters as well as the family at the Estate, but we feel that we must
impose this restriction to keep everyone safe in these extraordinary times.
We will not be hosting the usual breakfast after the hunt. Everyone is invited to
bring their own refreshments to enjoy at a safe distance from others. We will
provide water and soft drinks. We know you will all respect our wishes for this
year. 2021 will be a renewed chance to celebrate.
