Good to part of it.
I am currently looking for the woman that was photographing the event.(holly shootz)
I believe she was hired by the organizer of the event.
The club that was in attendance is interested in seeing the pictures.
If any one has any contact info for her I would be thankful. I can be contacted at [email protected]

I have an Uncle in Rock Falls, Illinois who was at Pearl Harbor December 7th, 1941 serving in the U.S. Army. He is 91 years old, and was the fifth born of eight sons, from Greene County, Illinois. Pearl Harbor was bombed on my Dad's 27th birthday and one his younger Brother's 17th. Another Uncle of mine, another of Dad's Brothers lives in Dixon and was a Marine. He is 89 and was at Iwo Jima. I had eight Uncles who served during WWII including two of Mom's Brothers. My Mom assembled handgrenades in a defence plant in Mercer County, Illinois during the war.
Those folks who served during WWII saved the World, literally. And as a Vet myself I salute all of them.
