Say what you will about the tenets of national civil war. At least it grew a lot of beards. Mark your calendars my east coast beard growing friends, there's a new beard compo in town. Or, in Fredericksburg* which is reasonably close to a few towns. I have it on good authority that we'll even have some SweetBeard members
surely winning engaging in healthy competition.

*Yes Fredericksburg, and yes the ad copy is civil war themed. No, this won't be a bunch of reenactment geeks in tents for the weekend. Unless by reenact you mean "grow beards" and by tent you mean "and support charity."
Whoa there my bearded friend. There's more pogonotrophy where this came from
