The Launch Beard Challenge

by Michael on May 28th, 2008 in Everyday Life at Lavasoft, Riff Raff.

It wasn't a contest so much as a challenge for beard growth.

Inspired by the national Swedish hockey team tradition of not shaving during the playoffs leading up to the world championships, some of our guys decided a couple of weeks before launch to let the hair grow - and here are the results. They also added a 'funky' hair day the day after launch, and then a fully clean shaven day on Friday.

Even Kalle, who was in Chicago (USA) at the time of launch sent out photos of his launch beard and the clean-shave after shot. Unfortunately, we don't have those available for this post.
