Salt Lake Beard Competition

Beard Love
On April 22, 2012 members of the Utah Beardsman Alliance participated in our first beard competition.  It was held at the Bourbon House in downtown Salt Lake.  As a club we used this opportunity to try and recruit more members to our group.  City Weekly was there doing there media coverage.  

The competition was broken down into five categories.  Contestants were allowed to participate in more than one category.    Each category had a big group of contestants but went very smooth and quick.  

The whole night was a big fellowship or brotherhood of beards.   We met lots of cool people and immediately picked up new members.   

Excerpt of a letter written to our members following the competition:

"My fellow Beardies and Beardettes,
I am on a new high after attending last nights competition. I met many nice people that came together for something we share in common. I don't know how many times I did my sales pitch to sell our club, but it is paying off. Those that attended also worked hard in selling the Beardsman.
Over the last 24 hours we have seen growth. I'm hoping over the next month leading into our next meeting that people remember our club and look to join. If you know anyone that may be interested in being a part of us invite them to a meeting, club outing, or add them to our page.
We are a dues free club. Eventually we will be a self sustaining club with the sale of merchandise and various fundraisers for ourselves with portions going to a charity. Donations are always welcome.
I want to welcome our new members and thank our current members for sticking around. Without you this would not exist. Utah would be the barren wasteland of lost beards. We are an oasis of found beards."

 For those that are interested in being involved with a competition or wanting more information leaves us a comment or visit us on Facebook or E-mail.
