Examine Orientation Consideration
Return to Skeet Design
Although the sun will be behind the shooters, the intense heat in Abu Dhabi would make shooting Skeet unpleasant - so a requirement for a sun-shade had to be considered.

We first proposed having a total sun-shade over the Skeet field as can be seen in the document to the RIGHT, however this would create shadows across the target flight path (pages 3 & 4).

Various alternatives were examined namely having individual shelters behind the Skeet ring, i.e. behind stations 2, 4 and 6 and outside in the spectator area.

However, we found a company in Germany that produces a translucent PTFE film that cuts out the sun's rays but does not cast dark shadows.   This material was used for the Berlin Olympic Stadium.
