Default Turn in box

I competed in Lawrence this last weekend. I thought that my boxes looked pretty good. The highest we got was an 8. I do not have any pics. Any suggestions on what a box should look like? I have seen the thread with the worst box, how about the best box?

I don't have any to post for you, but I did find some on the internet.

Do a web image search (above the web search box is an IMAGE tab) for them. I've found quite a few out there.

Like you I am still looking for those 9's on appearance, at the comps my boxes look great. When I get home and look and the pic's I say I can't believe I turned that in . Do a practice run and post your pic's.

It was suggested to take pictures of the boxes before turning them in to make adjustments before taking the walk to the judges. Saturday will be our first shot at it and plan to do it. It is amazing what the camera sees that the naked eye does not.

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.

Yeah, I used to hate putting boxes together but the more you do them the easier they get. I can usually knock them out in under 15 minutes - which I do at night. Then in the morning I give them a peak and maybe spend another 5 minutes on them to touch up.

I also noticed that even if the trays look perfect, you can take a picture of them and in the photo they will look aweful. Just remember that the judges will see them for a just a few seconds so perfection is not as important as nice even, green putting greens. Also make sure you use the curly parsley and remove any of the flat leaves that might be in the bunch, they stick out like a sore thumb.

I will use a thin layer of chopped leaf lettuce on the bottom, basically just a filler, then I will just start adding the parsley and filling in the holes as I go and in 15 minutes you have a perfect putting green. In reality, my wife does them way faster than I do, but in the end when I have put together one for her two, they both look great.

We did just that at the practice comp and did very well... Just a quick shot with the cell phone shows where you are out of line... Good Luck!!!
