I was once again privileged to be asked to photograph the 11th 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 $250,000 at the event. The proceeds from the days event helps benefit the children of Easter Seals.
