Gem City Gentlemen of the Gilded Beard

Shelly Hulce

After the success of last year's Beards of Science event, the members of Beard Team Ohio, spearheaded by the local Gem City Gentlemen of the Gilded Beard, decided to dream even bigger.  The result is October's BeardCon in Columbus, a beard and mustache convention with vendors, discussion and of course a beard and mustache competition.  Beard Team Ohio's Thomas Smith, Nate Stevens, Braden Tussing and Stephen Alexander visited the WYSO studios to talk about Beard Con, the charity it will benefit and how men, women and children can take part in the competition.
