To All Members and Fans of Beard Team USA,
Plans for the $5000 BTUSA National Beard and Moustache
Championships in Bend, Oregon on June 5 are well underway.
Online registration for the Nationals is now available!
Just go to http://beardteamusa.org/nationals for everything
you need to know. Registration for competitors is $40, which
gets you into the competition, two chances to win $1000 (one for
winning your category and another in the drawing), and free beer
during the event.
Before you register, be sure to check out the options available for
activities on Friday, June 4. When you register, you can sign up for a
choice of mountain biking, brewery hopping, canoeing, cave exploring, or
rafting. All of the activities have limited availability so be sure to sign
up soon. Click here for more information about the activities.
Also, note that there are three choices for lodging. The upscale Mt.
Bachelor Village Resort offer rooms and condos for a range for prices. Most
people will stay at the mid-range Phoenix Inn, which is offering suites to
our group for a rate of $109 per night. The budget option is at the Super 8
Motel with rooms for about $70.
If you stay at the Mt. Bachelor Village or at the Super 8, you will probably
want to have a car. If you are at the Phoenix Inn, you won't need one,
since the Phoenix Inn is right downtown.
Another Huge Announcement
Two-time World Beard Champion (Full Beard Natural) and noted beard book author
Jack Passion will not be competing. Jack is going to step aside and
give others with full beards a shot at the $1000. Instead, he will be the
onstage host of the competition.
Be sure to check beardteamusa.org for the latest information.
See you in Bend!
