       We could not be so lucky.. Anything in there for endangered species of skeet?

       I cannot get the grasp of what is happening here.

       Obviously you belong in Class C - or - you're trying to obscure your elves jealousy for not having thought of this wonderful idea.
It's very simple - the "shooter" hits a golf ball in an effort to hit the moving target - being skeet/clay pigeons. Difficult, but not impossible - though if someone actually hits one - it's newsorthy. When this becomes an Olympic Sport, I have no doubt it will have the highest ratings/wagers/replays/prices for scalped tickets, etc.

       UB - it's not just you. //International Golf Skeet will use International Golf Skeet rules.// - well, golly, and there was I thinking that it would use the Prime Directive or something.

       Oh gawd - just *pretend* there are rules which our International bunch of halfbakers is up to proposing. Toss any rule in - they'll be rubberstamped automagically.
