As with previous challenges, minor trims are allowed for neatness, but overall length should not be touched until June 21.
Here are the rules:
♦ In this thread the members intend to grow their beards until June 21.
♦ Minor surface trimming and shaping are allowed, but of course kept at minimum, the main emphasis is on the length.
♦ Post an initial picture measuring your current length and make it your goal to gain as much length as possible during the challenge. Then try to post updates weekly. The final update picture on or around June 21 should include a measurement to show the growth gains you achieved.
♦ Note: this is not a biggest beard competition, members can start at different lengths, but we will travel together, cheer each other on, and have a good time. Updates are encouraged once a week, front and side photos are preferred.
I will jump right in on this 1st day of April to launch this challenge.
I am somewhere between 4 1/4" and 4 1/2" inches in length. I am fairly happy with my current length, although I want to push it just a little longer. If I stay with this challenge, I should be at 5 - 5.5 inches by the beginning of summer. Let the journeys start!
