Mustach March 2011

Mustache March

It is time to enjoy the month dedicated to the upper lip hair. Mustache March is a month long event dedicated to the men (and a few special women). We will be holding a challenge to raise money and
food for the Athens County Food Bank. A Mustache...aka 'Moustache, stache, tache, tash, mo, nose neighbor, muzzy, lip fuz, flavor savor, is defined as hair above the upper lip. Nose hair blending into the 'stache is also ...considered part of the stache, though nasty.There will be different categories for all to enjoy.

Best of Show
Most Disturbing
Most Fitting
Dirtlip Award
Pre-Existing Condition Class

So grow out those stashes and buy yourself a small comb because the competition shall be fierce.

The Rules are posted below

Mustache March Rules:
1. All registered participants must be clean-shaven on March 1st, unless they are competing in the pre-existing condition class.

2. Facial hair of any variety is allowed until March 15th, after which point only a mustache is allowed. A mustache is defined as an island of hair that is at least 1cm (root to root) from the nearest body of facial hair. A mustache is an island. Get it? No isthmuses or peninsulas allowed.

3. Registered participants who shave off their mustache prior to judging, or those who refuse to obey to the "island" rule after March 15th are disqualified.

4. Participants will be subjected to a minimum of 2 photographs (before and after) during the course of Mustache March for documentation/humiliation purposes. Additional photography will be solicited. It is highly recommended that you comply to this solicitation for humiliation purposes.

5. Members wishing to compete for the Fakie Award must be present on April 1st at 4pm.

Remember, everyone is a winner in Mustache March. Some people are just more follicularly gifted than others. We're judging mustaches here folks, not individuals. With that said, here are the award categories.

Best of Show
The name basically sums it up. This award is reserved for the most spectacular specimen produced over the course of the month. This is utterly subjective to the judge's personal opinion, no matter how revealing that may be.

Most Disturbing
When you look at this mustache, goosebumps will appear in places you didn't know you had follicles. If you saw a layman on the street with this mustache, you'd warn other peoples children about this man.

Most Fitting
Sometimes the stars align and a man becomes something... more, with a mustache. This award is given to the mustache that makes a man greater than the sum of his otherwise wholly inadequate parts.

Dirtlip Award
The little follicles that couldn't. The recipient of this award can only take solace in the fact that this is all for charity.

Preexisting Condition Class Award
This is an wholly separate class reserved for the few, proud men who choose to wear a mustache every day of their glorious lives. Members of this class are not required to shave their existing mustaches on March 1st, but they are subject to rule #2 listed above. There is only one award for this class, and members of this class are not eligible for any other award categories. Members of this class are encouraged to go for "trick" points as their thick, luxurious, upper-lip base has long been established.
Fakie - The Best Fake Mustache
Mustache March is all about equal opportunity humiliation. This Award is for the Ladies. Buy or make your best follicle creation and wear it loud and proud on April 1st during the main event for live judging. No animals may be harmed in the creation of your test piece!
