The Whisker Club hosted the North American Beard and Moustache Championship on July 5, 2008. The event took place in Bremerton, Washington, USA. All of those with facial hair from around the corner or around the world were welcome to compete. The photo above was taken from the location of the competition, the Elks Lodge BPOE 1181. The championship followed the rules as seen in World Beard and Moustache Championships and included men from several American states, Canada, England, Sweden, Germany, and India. Some interesting photos and video were done by the Seattle Times newspaper and Newsweek. For a view of this and other competitions take a look at the Whisker Club galleries or friends page linked to many different clubs.

The Whisker Club is a not for profit club and donated the proceeds to what we feel are two very deserving charities. The Benedict House was built and is operated by Catholic Community Services. The Washington Veterans Home at Retsil will also be adding a new homeless shelter for veterans. The club is proud to be able to help the community with the help of our generous sponsors.
