I was once again privileged to be asked to photograph the 12th Annual Lyle Finch Memorial Claybird Classic at the Oak Ridge Sportsman’s Club in Mackinaw, IL. Throughout his career, Lyle Finch was not only known as a successful businessman, but as a highly respected leader in the construction industry. He is also fondly remembered as a loyal friend, an avid outdoorsman, and owner of the Rice Pond Duck Preserve in Chillicothe, IL.  In his honor, the Lyle Finch Memorial Claybird Classic was created. It was another fantastic event hosted by Doug and Diane Oberhelman. Thanks to all of the shooter’s who help raise $285,000 at the event. The proceeds from the days event helps benefit the children of Easter Seals. A number of the kids and President and CEO Steve Thompson wanted to express there love of Easter Seals and say thank you for supporting them on this special day.

Just finished spending the day photographing an outstanding charity event hosted by the Oak Ridge Sportsman’s Club in Mackinaw, IL. Thirty-one groups of 5 shooter’s battled the wind and sun to help the children of Easter Seals. This was the 9th annual Lyle Finch Memorial Claybird Classic and the event keeps breaking records in the amount of money raised. The tireless and energetic staff and volunteer’s led by Steven R. Thompson President & CEO reported a net amount of $145,000.00 for the event. Everyone that participated in the event was given a complimentary 8″ x 6″ photo of there team with the Lyle Finch Claybird logo included (image posted at bottom of post) in a photo folder at the awards ceremony that evening. A special thank you to my best friend and fellow professional photographer Rod McClanahan of Creative Photography in Pekin, IL for his help in photographing the event with me and making it a HUGE SUCCESS!!!
