2010 Bay of Beards Results!

Hello, Beardsman! It has been a while since I’ve had some time to sit and actually update the site a bit since the contest. So this will be a big post to catch all of you up on everything.

First and most importantly, the contest went incredibly well. The rnout was great with over 250 attendees. All together we raised 2090 dollars; crushing last year’s proceeds and this year’s goal. We couldn’t have done it without a handful of amazing volunteers that made a ton of the event what it was.

Special thanks from myself (Austin) and Beardsman go out to the following individuals: JP Marra, Randon Martin, Anthony Grajirena for the beautiful flyers, Jocelyn Nunez and Yvonne Rygiel for the amazing handmade trophies and other décor, Justin Brecese, Morgan Gall, and Chris Denny for being the critical beard growing judges, and Adam Williams and Dylan Williams for helping out at the door, Lilt Lathauser, Andrea Jenkins, Kendal Fleming, The Dunedin Brewery for keeping everything together and doing a great (job again), Shark Destroyer, and lastly all of the great sponsors that contributed to the raffle and prizes.

Thank you to all of our sponsors for their generous donations: The Dunedin Brewery, Classic Tattoos, Forever Tattoos, MAC, Bluebeards Original, Moe’s Mexican Grill (Countryside), Chainwheel Drive, Peg & Awl, Kabob House, Dunedin House of Beers, Tampa Bay Paintball, Chris Reed, Ryan Cullen, Scott Lukacs, Keller, Jocelyn Nunez, Daniel Mrgan, Allen Hampton, Anthony Grajirena, Chris Parks, Berto, Girl.Bike.Dog, Hands On Bicylcles, Burro Bags, 66Fixed, Heart of Gold Clothing, Yanko Pads, and City Cycle Supply.
