The Spokane Beard & Mustache Foundation is supported by the Spokane Beard & Mustache Club, a separate social group. The club meets the 4th Thursday of the month, 6:00 pm, at various locations. We talk about club and foundation business, have a great time together, and volunteer for various charities including our chosen charity for the year! We have different levels of membership.
REGULAR MEMBER: Come to the meetings when you can and have a great time!
REGISTERED MEMBER: Dues are $40 per year. All registered members are on a 6 point system. A club meeting is one point. There will be a sign in sheet at every meeting. You need to sign the sheet if you want the meeting to count for your requirement. Any local, regional, or national competition is 2 points. Any charity event we do is 2 points. A charity event is defined as at least 5 registered members attending or helping with an event for any given charity that isn’t our chosen charity. If it is working directly with the charity we have chosen for the year, it doesn’t matter how many members are present. This makes it easier for registered members to meet their requirement in a variety of ways. 6 meetings, 4 meetings and an event, 3 events, etc. Lots of different combinations to get you there. In return for your investment in the club, we like to make sure the members get something tangible. You will receive a membership card, a vote in club business, any discounts secured with local businesses, and each quarter there will be a member gift in appreciation for you joining.
PATCHED MEMBER: Registered member for 1 year. If this is your first year as a registered member, you can still earn towards your patch but the requirements aren’t completed until you pay your 2nd year dues. Attend 8 meetings in the calendar year. Compete in 1 major regional/national competition (Spokane, Portland, Vancouver, Sacramento, etc). Participate in 4 charity events. Events can consist of working with our charity of the year, working with another charity with at least 5 registered members present, or raising at least $100 on Causevox for our charity. Collecting and turning in at least $100 in donations also counts. Anyone who participates in 4 charity events and then raises over $100 on Causevox or on their own as a 5th event will receive a special button limited to only those who reach that goal. These requirements are cut and dry, not a point system like the registered member requirements. All requirements need to be met in a calendar year.
