This event is a claybird shooting course that includes 10 unique stations laid out over natural terrain.  The Claybird Classic is held at the Oak Ridge Sportsman's Club in Mackinaw, Illinois - a premier sporting clay course in Central Illinois.  Each participant is grouped into teams of five.  You can register your own team of five people or as an individual and be placed into a team.


This event is to celebrate the life of Burt Mercier and his love for Timber Pointe Outdoor Center.  Burt had a love of the outdoors, days of pheasant hunts and helping children with disabilities.


All proceeds from the Claybird Classic will go into the Burt Mercier Memorial Endowment Fund.  Earnings from the fund will benefit Timber Pointe Outdoor Center and the thousands of children with disabilities who will make lasting memories there for years to come.


Join us in celebrating Burt Mercier and Timber Pointe Outdoor Center by donating to the cause, joining us at the Claybird Classic on September 20, or both!
