Penetanguishene and Simcoe County Area’s First Ever ‘Official’ Air Guitar Championships To
Be Held on June 25th !
To many it is a travesty that our great area of Simcoe County has been without its own official and internationally sanctioned Air Guitar Championships. Air Guitar Canada (AGC) is pleased to announce that on June 25 th, at the Maple Valley Sports Club, this grievous wrong will be remedied. The first ever ‘official’ Penetanguishene Air Guitar Champion will be crowned and later sent on to Toronto for the National Finals on July 16th for their chance at the Canadian title.
For the past 21 years in Oulu, Finland (the northern capital), Air Guitarists from around the world meet
to compete in the AIR GUITAR WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS (AGWC). They create 1minute performances that defy reality and melt the crowd’s faces. These air guitar heroes are judged using the figure skating scoring system of 4.0 to 6.0 for originality, stage charisma, technical merit, ability to be taken over by the music, artistic impression, and of course, ‘airness’.
Air Guitar is all about promoting world peace. The mantra: ‘When you’re holding an Air Guitar, you can’t be holding a gun’. Air Guitar Canada has a charitable mandate. As a not for profit organization it donates the net proceeds of the events to Right To Play Canada Helping children facing adversity due to war,
famine, and poverty worldwide through sport and play programs.
Tickets are available in advance or at the door. Or better yet, Air Guitarists are invited to register to compete and get their shot at rock stardom and a chance to win a trip to Finland to represent Canada as the 2016 Canadian Air Guitar Champion. What better way to volunt’air’ yourself for a great cause?
