    Thank you, Steven for posting about the 2009 World Beard and Mustache Championships. When I saw the post this evening, it meant the world to me! What an event! It was so much fun meeting great people with great facial hair! I was hoping to meet you there. Did you attend? Can you believe I was awarded 3rd place in the Garibaldi category? I was surprised to even place. There were some great beards on that stage! I had quite a few professional pictures taken and will send some your way for you to post or just to have.

    John, I was so pleased to learn that you were among the winners! Congrats again! I am so very proud of you!

    I would have loved to be there, but was unable to attend. I’ll look forward to hearing all about your experiences at the event. Sounds like you had a wonderful time!

    I was at the competition in “full beard natural” but did not place. There was a lot of excellent beards there. One word of advise … if you’re going to compete in “full beard natural” you need at least four to six years growth just to be in the run-off. There were 44 contestants in “FBN” and the “mega beards” ruled. The longest beard I saw there was knee length.

    Aldon, congratulations on competing! Thanks for the tip, too. Sounds like the competition was formidable.
