  1. Will there be chapters? I’m interested. I live in just south of Carson City, NV and there are some great beards out this way. I’ve been thinking of using some of the older ‘thirst parlors’ in the area (Carson, Genoa, Minden, Virginia City) as a way to hold a contests. Contact me via email with any info.

  2. It is not necessary to be a chapter to host a series event.

  3. Love to host event here in Asheville NC, info please?

  4. I want in! Just joined on the website and would really love to get involved! I’m a disabled vet with lots of time on my hands. I live in Blairsville, Ga. Does anyone know if there is a chapter close by? Lots of bearded mountain men in these parts, I am sure many would like to get involved as well. Blairsville, Ga would be a great location for a competition. We are well stocked with beardsmen and have a ton of festivals annually including the Sorghum Festival and annual Scottish games fest.

  5. We are looking into hosting an event at our facility and would like to know the information to do so.

    We do these events we call Junglefests and this would be great to tie into some of our more popular events.

    Please contact me


  6. I live in Norfolk Virginia. It seems very difficult to locate any information on contests. Any suggestions?
