Checking in from Week #3 of the ‘Stache-Off. This week started off with a surprising turn of events as competitor Jered Smith withdrew from the event, marking our first entry onto the DL. After suffering a Mandibular Follicular Fracture, he will be recovering at an undisclosed clinic in Florida. Taking his place in the competition will be Dan O’Keeffe of O’Keeffe Communications. Be sure to check out Dan’s stats on our Official ‘Stache-Off Page, and give him your support, as he attempts to overturn the competition with ONE WEEK of growth. Good luck, Dan!
Here at Electronic Art, we’re a socially-aware bunch. And just to prove it, we’re supporting the 2008 Beijing Olympics with a little competition of our own – the E.A. ‘Stache-Off ‘08. On August 1st, the handsome men of Electronic Art will shorn themselves back to a natural, moustache-free state and let the growing begin (Guy Dillon has been granted exception in the shaving by the staff as he already has an admirable and stately mustache the likes of which should not be messed with). Each contestant will then grow his (or her? Uhhh … ) facial hair for a duration of 24 consecutive days. No Rogaine, Monoxidil or other hair growth supplements allowed. Random screening for such chemical enhancers will be performed throughout the competition and ‘dopers’ will be disqualified. Judging will be held on August 25th and winners announced by COB on that day. Photographs of the competition will be shared right here on our blog – don’t miss out. Postings will include pre-competition shots as well as interim progress shots and of course, the final judging shots. Winners of the following categories will be announced: change in appearance, style, presentation at judging, and of course the overall best moustache category. If you would like to participate in the E.A. ‘Stache-Off ’08, feel free to submit pre-competition and judging photos for consideration.
