If you see some people walking around town (or here at the radio station) looking a bit more scraggly than they normally do, don't worry! You haven't missed the NHL playoffs yet and Gilette hasn't gone out of business. They might be taking part in a fundraising effort called 'No Shave November' .
I didn't know there was such a thing. But it's a fairly new event - in just its second year - the National Beard and Moustache Championships. It took place over the weekend in Lancaster, Pennyslvania.
Around 200 contestants from all over the world showed up to compete in five categories:
Partial Beard including sideburns, Van Dykes, goatees and soul patches.
Groomed Full Beard
