1 more week guys! I was briefly talking with Caleb Arter and he explained that up to this week he was slightly dreading his beard. His beard was itchy, scratchy, and patchy for the first 6 weeks. Once he hit the 7 week mark, something clicked and now he loves it! It feels good to convert someone to the beard-side of the force!
Next week will be our final week, make it a good one! Here's how the finale will all go down. Submit your final photo on Tuesday Oct. 28th, I'll post all the photos on Wednesday along with a link to an online poll. After you've submitted your final photo, you can do whatever you want with your beard. If you shave, you won't be disqualified from the contest.
On Monday, Nov. 3rd we'll meet at The Mule from 8-10pm. We've got space reserved and we'll all hang out, eat, drink and be merry. We'll annouce the results from the online poll and award our victors their prizes.
Just for participating in the contest, everyone (including sponsors!) will recieve a super limited #GrowABeardOK t-shirt. If you haven't sent me your shirt size, please do so, or I'll just assume you wear a large. Here's a look at the front of our shirt. Sponsors names and logos will adorn the back! Thanks for participating. It's always a fun (and goofy) contest, but we love hosting it.
If you're interested in sponsoring the contest (a couple simple gifts for our winners) we'd be happy to include your logo/information on the back of our shirt. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for information.
Now! On to the beards!
"Successfully recreated my 6th grade yearbook photo...beard included. Go Royals."
That's some gnarly bearding right there!
"Now that it is grown and burly, my beard and I traveled north to partake in the time-honored bearded tradition of lumberjacking… and jack lumber we did"
If lumberjacking doesn't work out, you could always go into the paper towel industry!
"2 weeks left and I don't know why I would ever shave!"
Exactly! I'm with you! Keep it for-ev-ur.
"I think I missed a few entries but thanks for letting me play. Now to shave and start this mess all over again. "
You doing Movember?
Mighty fine beard there, L-Beardie.
Hugh Jazz aka Kolsen McLaughlin
Well played! Horribly photoshoped!
Dude, you're lookin' mean! You're intimidating me through my monitor.
Kaemon Patterson aka YUNG BABYSHOE
Babyshoe, I bet this is before your time, but this reminded me of Beakman's World.
"Muah Ha Ha Ha Ha!"
Snidely Whiplash is back!
"Quite nice, if I do say so myself. "
I concur, Jerry, I concur.
The beardiest buck there ever was. Great shot!
"Hey do you have an age limit on drink and draw? My nephew is starting to write/draw and want to give him a postive place to meet some artist that will help and keep in the blackbook for now..."
Drink & Draw is open to everyone! Bring him on out next Thursday!
Splendid beard. So much better than you made it out to sound initially!
Bryan & Solomon Matthews
"We pause to reflect on the past and think about the future of beard growth within this family..."
It's a bird! It's a plane...It's a beard!
"The Macho Man. Ooh yeah, Beardo Madness is running wild! My beard's the tower of power, too sweet to be sour. It's funky like a monkey. Sky's the limit and space is the place. DIG IT!"
Heck yeah! Gunning for the title belt!
Looking like being apart of the #beardgang is wearing on you, bro!
"At the Gray Owl in Norman. Stopped in at the new Dreamer Concepts Gallery and then a latte. Week seven of growth, no Just for Men yet keeping it real."
Dude, I can't wait to get some grey in my beard! You're the beast!
Beard on, duuuuuddddddeeeeessssss! SEND ME YOUR SHIRT SIZES!
