WFMY -- Memorial Day is the unofficial start of summer, but this week also marks the start of the summer season for another reason: It's National Backyard Games Week.

We wanted to kick it off right on the Good Morning Show. So, we asked Mike Kemp, owner of Play It Again Sports, to help us stir up a little bit of friendly competition.

Memorial Day is the unofficial start of summer, but this week also marks the start of the summer season for another reason: It's National Backyard Games Week.

Kemp explained the rules of ladder ball, bocce, horse shoes, and a Triad favorite -- corn hole.

Watch the video to see his explanation and how the Good Morning Show crew did!

You can buy equipment for the backyard games at Play It Again Sports and other sporting good stores in the Triad, just in time for your Memorial Day parties and picnics.
