You are the manliest man on all of RM if you have been rocking facial hair around Seoul these days. I am going through 4 shirts a day and the humidity has me permanently in a homicidal rage. Sweated. Through. Pre-8am. I am so happy to be heading out Friday morning.
I figure if people would just PM me, it would be a good way to get a decent list going, but there needs to be some way to relate who says they're IN with who has paid.
We could use my paypal account, but Im not sure if people are really comfortable with me in charge of their money.
Also, anyone out there got an "IN" with a trophy shop at any level? I could craft together some kind of trophy also.
And then there's the matter of the charity.
And there's WILL JBP accept his role as judge.
$10 a head, due by Aug. 1, before you can post a pre-stache pic.
Also, anyone wishing to simply donate to the account, but not participate may do so... ahem ladies.
Well, I don't have a problem giving money to little bald kids, but this is a cycling site after all, and we all have an interest in promoting cycling. Some here (not mentioning names) seem to be against advancing modern medicine.
Or maybe there's some sort of "bikes for kids" type of organization....While I don't have an issue with IMBA or anything, but when it's for people that are typically riding bikes that are worth thousands of dollars, there has to be SOMETHING more in need and still in keeping with the theme....
#2. Send me a PM after your transaction has been completed, and in the PM let me know what email adress you've used to send the money so I can verify who has paid. And add your name to mah list.
#3. Post a pic of yourself, freshly shorn (at least your upper lip) in THIS thread ON AUG 1. I'm going to assume no one here would be shallow enough to try and cheat this thing, but if you could somehow get an image of the current date in your photo, it'd eliminate all doubt.
If people want to sign up after Aug. 1, I suppose that is fine, but you will still have to post a pic of your final mustache by Aug. 31. In other words, you don't get any extra time. If anyone simply wants to add to the donation that we're giving to the yet-to-be-determined charity, that's fine as well.
A new thread will be started on Aug. 30/31 in which people can post their final staches for judgement by JBP.
So... I will be officially judging the Mustache Cup 2008 at the Bike Park at SolVista at Granby Ranch on August 2nd. Although I am not a participant in that contest, I will most likely have a solid stash going. I will shave clean the following day (Sunday August 3rd) and start anew for the Ridemonkey Mustache Contest.
Attached is a picture of the "ice block" that will be chiseled into a work of art for the Mustache Cup 2008. I'm riding RAGBRAI next week so I am thinking that all that beard and hair has to GO, and it's going today, in about 20 minutes. I'll post an "after" shot here in a bit... so ya'll can see what I got in mind!
