Cornhole tournament offers new experience

BILL McMILLEN, The Daily NewsMay 27, 2019

BULLHEAD CITY — The father-and-son team of Rob Mendez Sr. and Rob Mendez Jr. had a simple reason for taking part in the Bullhead City Recreation Division’s Cornhole Under the Stars tournament at Rotary Park.

“Any chance we can to get into a tournament ...” Mendez Jr. said.

Friday night’s tournament — the city’s first venture in open-to-the-general-public cornhole competition — drew 14 two-player teams.

“I got a picture sent to me by a buddy,” Mendez Jr. said, pulling out his cellphone to display a photo of a flyer that had been posted at a convenience store.

Others saw news of the event in the Mohave Valley Daily News or on the internet. A few were coaxed into playing after being told about the event by a friend or family member.
