IMHO-Appearance points are free. Without a good score there, you might as well not turn your trays in. My wife and I learned how to do the trays and it was time consuming and painful. Then we realized that you can build a putting green in about 15 minutes. We probably spent an hour tops putting our trays together at the royal last year (our first KCBS event) The bulk of our appearance scores were 9's. It helps if you buy good parsley.
