May Beards 2012: On your marks, get set, GROW!

Apologies if I'm stepping on anyone's toes here by fanposting this first.

As a community, we here at Gaslamp Ball have started a coveted tradition: the May Beard. Our very own matthewverygood started this tradition officially/unofficially (not really sure) in the spring of 2007 (See this post). Since then, it has gone from him, to many people lurkers and non-lurkers alike, both men and women (if they so choose, we don't discriminate) kids and adults.

So how does one grow a May Beard? I'm glad you asked. Here's the guidelines, posted by the man who started it himself a couple of years ago:

Here's the guidelines that I abide by, but you can do whatever. Just grow something. Maybe you'll like it.

  • Light grooming is allowed, especially if you need to because your shaggy appearance might get you fired from your job or make your girlfriend or wife find you less sexy.
  • Don't like beards? That's fine. Mustache it up then!
  • Ladies, you can join too. Be creative. I won't judge you.
  • Need some tips? This site has the goods.

Shaved Yet? I am:
