Hanu challenged all the scientists to not shave during the entire length of the cruise when we left Stanley on November 7th. Consequently, 3 weeks into the trip, we have various shapes and lengths of beards. One day before we reach the Rothera Base, on December 2nd, there will be a scientists + crew “End of Cruise” dinner, and we will hold a “Beard Contest” that night. As the most objective souls, the three female scientists Susanne, Kerri and myself were appointed as the judges. We have decided it will not be enough to have grown the biggest beard (as Hanu would win that one easily) but unfortunately I can not reveal the other judging rules just yet due to the confidentiality of the contest.
