Beard of the Month – October

by | Oct 6, 2022

Each month the River Haven Panel of local dignitaries, confused neighbours and hangers on, will carefully consider all pictorial submissions and award the title of River Haven Beard of the Month. 

The judging criteria follows the traditional rules of ABC:

  1. Architecture – to include shape, texture and dimensional consistency.
  2. Bravery – can the owner accept the public curiosity and ridicule?
  3. Creativity – recognising historic and contemporary design inspirations.

In addition the female members of the Panel are looking for:

  1. Non-abrasive texture and tickle factor.
  2. Colour and shape – “who wants to be with an old beardy weirdy?”
  3. Smell! “What the f*** yer got in there?” (Although there’s a special prize for beards providing a safe haven for endangered species).

Each month we award the winner $100 of beer. 

Please submit entries for the month of October to [email protected] – good luck!

*The winner for September is Susan from Upper Moutere pictured here wondering what the hell to do with $100 of beer!
