This coming weekend we get the party started in cottage country. Saturday, June 25th at the Maple Valley Sports Club, history will be made as we crown the first ever ‘official’ Penetanguishene Air Guitar Champion.
Brave hopefuls and relatively bold half-hammered others will take the stage and give us their best 1-minute of Air Guitar for the chance to travel to Toronto for the Canadian Championships on July16th. And if they win in Toronto, the winner will fly to Finland for the 21st Air Guitar World Championships.
Over the next few days we will be putting up some tasty bits of information to get the people of Penetang, Midland, and all of Simcoe County pumped for the good times to come on Saturday. I can guarantee that Air Guitar Canada and Maple Valley Comedy will deliver the most ridiculous and fun event of the summer. You will want to bring everyone you care about to witness whatever this is. Rock 95 is on board. Midland Film Company is too. We have some killer judges to make the hard decisions… so now we need you. This is for real.
We have a few videos to stoke your fires and rev up your seadoos. Both feature local hero James ‘Thrustin Beaver’ Dalzell doing what he does best.
The best part – other than it is fuelled by Steam Whistle beer, is that the benefits of the event go to Right To Play Canada – helping kids facing war, famine, and poverty through sport and play programs. It’s like a 10K charity run for goofs. So in doing something so dumb… we do something so good.
After all… the motto of Air Guitar is:
‘When you are holding an Air Guitar, You can’t be holding a gun’ – Ancient Air Guitar Proverb.
