Well its complicated Rushy so I have used a WIKI explanation.
Similar to shotgun sport shooting, There are 5 stations. Shooters shoot in turn. Each station has a menu that lets the shooter know the sequence of birds they will be shooting (IE which trap the clay target will be coming from). Six to eighteen strategically placed clay target throwers.
Typical five stand targets are.. Rabbit, chandelle, Overhead, Skeet high house, Skeet low house, teal,(straight up) and an incoming bird...........
The wind was that strong today that many of the high birds came back in a curving flight toward the shooter. Making them diabolical to hit. Also some of the traps were throwing those really small clays that appear to be going at twice the speed downwind. What with the icy showers coming straight into the shooter face it was a challenging day.
I went to shoot this morning, but just ended up watching a few of the rounds as I had quite a bit to think about. My Mother died this morning. She was ninety two. Still held her driving licence and had hardly had a sick day in her life.
You would have to say she has had a great innings.
