Hi folks, today we have some sad news that due to circumstances very much outside our control we are going to have to postpone BEARDI 2016 this year. All teams and officials to whom we are very grateful for their contribution and applications have been informed of this decision. When BEARDI was set up, its twin goals were to provide a platform for up and coming teams across the UK and Europe and to be run completely non profit with all proceeds raised going to fight cancer. We can very proudly say that over the past two years we have achieved these goals and so we will be working hard to bring BEARDI back before you know it. Derby Love always x ...

Grow your beard for BEARDi!! Have you got what it takes to be Best beard 2016? ...
Don't forget that BEARDi loves beards so start growing yours ready for our BEST BEARD comptition which will be held on the day! Here is CTB's very own Red, White, and Bruise sporting last year's winning entry (spoiler alert, it has only got more beardy since then!!)
The beard is judged by audience voting on the day so send us a photo of your beard (or post below) with a little bit about it (length, luxurience, products used to keep it shiny, etc) and you could be BEARDi's Best Beard 2016!
if you have no beard then there is plenty of time to grow/create one so consider this a challenge to your face! Bring on the beards!

Today we have a special Dame to have their mug plastered across the internet and take their place on the BBD Birthday Wall of Fame.
He's been the A Team Coach since the dawn of time. He's the glue that holds the team together, and he's partial to drawing dinosaurs when he's in meetings.
Today we say Happy Birthday to none other than Rex Tangle and as he is prone to cracking a rubbish joke, here's a truly awful one just for him:
Q; Where do pirates like to live in Birmingham???
A: Great Barrrrrrrrrrrr
Have a cracking Birthday Dude!! xx
