Beardsman March 2009 Contest In Review

Today is April 3rd, 2009 and this is the first installment of the Growers Gazette. This is where you can find all kinds of bearded news from the last month. The First ever Beardsman Beard & Moustache competition was on March 28 th and was a monumental success. Everyone had a killer time. 100 beards made it out to the extravaganza, and together we raised $1557 towards the Beardsman Foundation. The event was covered by some local media. You can read those articles here. TBT / Tampa Tribune /
