Current Freestyle National Champ (Bend 2010) Willi Chevalier will be flying in from Germany to serve as a judge at this year's National Beard and Moustache Championships in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, on October 8, 2011. Chevalier, who once lost most of his beard to a unfortunate encounter with a power drill, boasts a bearding resume chock full of World, European, and German National Championships in addition to his popular victory last year in Bend. In fact, if he shows up, he usually wins!
Well, this year he is showing up but not to compete. Competitors in Lancaster will have the honor of sharing the stage with this legend in the sport of bearding. Danke fuer Deine Anwesenheit, Willi!
