Here are some photos we took at the competition

Mike Ames, organizer of the event and author of "World Beard and Moustache Championships", and his lovely lady friend Amanda. That is not her normal hair color but she certainly is a sweethart!!!
Ivan Swaner, on the left, has lived in the Ketchum area since birth. At seventy-two years old he is well known among the local residents and recently acted as grand marshall of the local mining days celebration parade. He is also the resident historian. It was said after the competition that there would be a fundraising effort among local residents to finance a trip to Berlin for this great guy. Best of luck, Ivan!!!
