The Whisker Club was founded in 1998, as a form of flattery of the facial hair clubs often found in Europe. The club is based out of Bremerton, Washington, USA. The Whisker Club was founded with the goals of organizing facial hair competitions and increasing the number of Americans involved in facial hair competitions throughout the world. The club's president is Bruce Roe.
