    Are there any clubs for bearded men who want to compete in the annual contests? If there are not any such organizations for hirsute gentlemen, what steps must a prospective competitor take in order to apply for admittance to the yearly contests?

  2. The National Beard and Moustache Championships are open to all, whether or not they are members of a club. Also anyone can join Beard Team USA. There are no dues, no rules, no acceptance process. Just go to and join. The 2012 Nationals will be in Las Vegas on November 11. Look for an official announcement about the venue soon. Phil
