Temps were a crisp 30 or so degrees when Oak Ridge Fox Hunt Club kicked off its 2011 opening hunt. The annual event usually gets its start around the first week of November. Our Valley Photographer, Hayley Osborne was along for the day to grab these shots! Hayley has been a long time member of the club as well.

Friends give David Wheeler with ORFHC well wishes on opening day at Arrington.
The weather was absolutely perfect for opening hunt.
