Well it was amazing. Mickey did not place in his chosen category but there were over 40 competitors and he was up against some really impressive beards. He still has the distinction of being the only Marylander in the competition. Something we hope will not be the case when we go to Norway in 2011! We are leaving in about 15 minutes to go on a day trip glacier cruise. I have uploaded a bunch of new pictures but with no editing and I don't have time to write an explanation. I will do so as soon as I get a chance.
