Pre-conference Networking and Preparation

Sporting Clay (Skeet) :  A shotgun sport with clay birds as targets as well as clay rabbits, so this has air and ground tracking. Groups traverse the course of 14 stations in golf carts. At each station, each person takes 6-8 shots at the clay targets in turn. Score sheets are available. According to WikiPedia (, 'Sporting clays is a form of clay pigeon shooting, often described as 'golf with a shotgun' because a typical course includes from 10 to 15 different shooting stations laid out over natural terrain. For safety, the course size is often no smaller than 35 acres (14 ha). Unlike trap and skeet, which are games of repeatable target presentations, sporting clays simulates the unpredictability of live-quarry shooting, offering a great variety of trajectories, angles, speeds, elevations, distances, and target sizes."
