Deming "Tortilla Toss" Saturday

Aug 20, 2013

They're warming up their arms in Deming in preparation for the Great American Tortilla Toss competition.

Just like it sounds, the competition to be held Saturday will have contestants in several age categories trying to throw tortillas as far and straight as possible.

The Deming Headlight reports that winners will receive prizes that include cash awards, with the amounts depending on the number of entries in each age category.

The competition is staged on Poplar Street and is part of the Great American Duck Race.

A local surveying firm will measure the tosses for distance and accuracy while a Deming restaurant will provide the tortillas.
