8.26.13 - Participation Survey
Seems we've had a few months where the Sunday meetings just hasn't worked out out for many. So in order to figure out a better time, activities and ideas to go with, here's a survey for our members to fill out. 


2.25.13 - We're Putting the Band Back Together!
After hanging up the thought of getting a Club established, we're going to give it another go! The interest in doing something good for the community while having some good 'ol follicle fun while doing it! 

Our mission, as always will be to:
  • Lend a helping hand to the community 
  • Change the negative stereotypes attached to being a Bearded or Moustached man
  • Promote the growing of and passion for Beards and Moustaches
  • Encourage women's involvement in the creative and artistic forms of competition
  • and of course, have one hell of a time doing both!
Membership is open to all men with facial hair be it short, long, partial or patchy and the women that support support and encourage it!

Our first meeting will be this Sunday afternoon (Location TBD). We've got a nice core group of people ready to lead the charge. All we need now is your participation and support! 

3.1.12 - Follicles for Fur is nearly upon us!
By this time, two days from now, We will have crowned 9 1st place contestants in the BeardOh!, Follicles for Fur Beard & Moustache Charity Competition. The pressure is on as this is our first competition and we want it to be something the Jackson community can be proud of and look forward to more of. 

Our esteemed panel of judges include:
  • Debra Carmody, Executive Director of the CHS
  • Niki "Luci Fear" Elcome, Member of the Jack Town Derby Girls 
  • Stacey "Skid Vicious" Member of the Jack Town Derby Girls
  • David Stiles, Tattoo Artist Extraordinaire, Ye Old Skull
  • J Rod, Radio Personality, K105.3 FM
There will be an awesome Photographer, Khalid, of Eat Pomegranate Photography at the event taking photos of the contestants and those in attendance for the event. Medium Res pictures will be made available through the internet and those wanting to pay for high res versions will receive information as to how at the event. Be sure to get your picture taken, You'll want to remember a night like this for a long time to come!

Music will be provided during registration and between categories by Jackson's own Brent Hanlin. Brent is a musician/producer who's recent producing credits includeHoney and Buffalo (Chicago, IL), Distant Decend (Jackson), Flude Fearra (Jackson) and The Holy Jean Band (Jackson). He currently plays with Second Street (Jackson), Bleu (Jackson) and Crucial 420 (Toledo, OH).  Be it originals or covers Brent puts his own spin on the songs he plays! 

As we put the finishing touches on the awards, raffle prizes and volunteers we would like to encourage everyone to pre-register online so that we know what to expect the night of. It's going to be a packed house so be prepared to get to know the Beard & Moustache community up close and personal. We don't bite... hard!

This should prove to be an awesome night of fun, friendship and most importantly charity. All of the proceeds will be going to the Cascades Humane Society to help continue all of the awesome things that they do!

1.21.12 - Let's try this again!
Days after making a decision to hang up the hopes of starting a Beard & Moustache Club here in Jackson, we got a message from Dave Stiles at Ye Old Skull Tattoo that local bar owner, DJ Mike Holiday, wanted to host a competition at his bar, the Oh! Bar. This of course made our beards tingle and stand on end. 

We are now in the process of getting the competition ready to go. It will be held on March 3rd, registration begins at 6pm with the competition to start (we hope) at 7pm. Now to find a charity to support, judges and get to making some trophies! It may be a small contest, but it will be the start of something beardiful in Jackson! stay tuned

8.2.11 - New name, new logo & updated photos
Feeling as if we may have alienated our moustached brothers, we've changed the name of the group to the Jackson Beard & Moustache Club! The logo has also gotten a beardlift and will soon find it's way to a tshirt near you! And in true spirit of timeliness.... we've added a photo gallery of the Motor City Beard & Moustache Championships that were held just a mere 7 months ago in Detrout, MI! Take a peek!


4.14.11 - New Photo Gallery!
Check out the pictures we've found from The Gem City Gentlemen of the Gilded Beard event held last November to raise funds for the Stillwater Center in Dayton, OH.

Bearded Joke of the Day
In the mid-sixties, there was a hippy named Benny in San Francisco. Benny was real hip, but he just couldn't grow a beard like the rest of the flower child guys in Haight-Ashbury (Hashbury). One day Benny met up with a Gypsy Lady who liked him enough to grant him a wish, so, naturally, Benny wished for a beard. Gypsy Lady granted the wish but warned Benny to ALWAYS wear the beard, never cut it off. Well, the years went by, the flower children aged, the hippoy movement sorta died out, Benny went on to a career as a successful financial adviser. Benny decided the beard no longer fit his image so, ignoring the Gypsy Lady`s warnings, he shaved it off. **POOF** Benny disintegrated into a pile of ashes, the janitor swept him up and deposited him in a jar. Moral of the story: A Benny shaved is a Benny urned.

Tomorrow Night's Meet & Greet
For those of you that will be in the Detroit area tomorrow night, there is the Motor City Beard & Moustache Meet & Greet. It starts at 7pm and will be at the Old Shillelagh Pub. Be sure to RSVP on the Facebook Event page and we'll see you there!



4.10.11 - After a weekend of fiddling around with a logo... we think we have narrowed it down to,say, the second to last one! What do you think?

The guest list for the Motor City Beard & Moustache Competition in Hamtramck, MI Saturday April 16th is getting LARGE! and by LARGE, we mean some of the biggest names in Beards and Moustaches are coming from places like California, New York, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, and CANADA! This is going... to.... be.... AWESOME!
