Time to toss some tortillas
DEMING, N.M. (AP) - August 21, 2013 (WPVI) -- They're warming up their arms in Deming, New Mexico, in preparation for the Great American Tortilla Toss competition.
Just like it sounds, the competition will have contestants in several age categories trying to throw tortillas as far and straight as possible.
The Deming Headlight reports that winners will get prizes that include cash awards, with the amounts depending on the number of entries in each age category.
A local surveying firm will measure the tosses for distance and accuracy while a Deming restaurant will provide the tortillas for Saturday's event.
