Default How important is an appearance point

If you ever wondered how important it is to nail your appearance points it came home to us this weekend in Hammond. One judge gave us an 8 in appearance.

Our 2nd place ribs scored 172.0000
1st place ribs scored 172.0004

It'll make you pull your hair out if you think about it too long

If it was KCBS the lowest score is thrown out isn't it?

Lowest judge score is thrown out. The 172.0000 would be the adjusted score out of a perfect 180.0000.

That's one hell of a rib score!

We've lost a numerical tie to all four decimal places, and landed out of the money instead of RGC. On the other hand, we've GC'd by as little as half a point.

You can't think about it too much, it's just part of the crazy way the numbers shake out sometimes -- every table is a roll of the dice.

It was the lowest score left after the other lowest score was thrown out. If that makes any sense and I didn't mean to whine or anything, I was just stressing how important a point can be.

Right! Maybe adjusted wasn't the right word. 172 would be the score using the top 5 scores

Ask Andy about missing GC at the AMR 2008 by a half point overall.

In Mike Lakes judging class a couple weeks ago he mentioned (while trying to impress on the new judges) how important it is to give full attention to their duty, that he had lost a $5000 payout due to being behind by 1/10,000 of a point.
I wouldn't have wanted to be in the trailer with Theresa after awards........

yes, and i still have nightmares over that one !! I was .0008 from first and .0006 from second. There's some people on this forum that think appearance isn't that important... for those of you who think that way, please keep doing so.
