The sport of Mobile Phone Throwing is coming to Canada. Mobilicity will sponsor the 1st Annual Canadian Mobile Phone Throwing Championship that will take place in Toronto on Saturday, October 13th. Inspired by a similar event which took place recently in Finland, the event will give participants the chance to win the top prize of CA$5,000 and a Samsung Galaxy S III smartphone with a year of Mobilicity’s unlimited data, talk and text service. Second and third will walk away with a smartphone with Mobilicity’s unlimited service.
“It’s no secret that most Canadians have been frustrated for years about being locked into mobile phone contracts and paying the highest rates in the world, said Mobilicity’s Chief Customer Officer Anthony Booth. “At Mobilicity, we understand what Canadians have been going through and want to give them the unique opportunity to unleash their pent-up frustration and make history at the same time.”
The current world record stands at 101.46 metres. It was set by Ere Karjalainen of Finland.
The event coincides with Waste Reduction Week in Canada (October 15th to 21st). Mobilicity will have recycling bins at the event for easy and safe recycling of mobile devices.
