Punkin' Chunkin' team Aludium Q36 Pumpkin Modulator, which cur- rently holds the world record, came to Delaware in Septem- ber as a stowaway with the Bad To The Bone punkin' chunker team. Marvin fell in love with the f' T mascot of Delaware's Poor and Hungry team and shipped east with the Bad To The Bone team to track down his love. Marvin will be reunited with his Illinois teammates when they travel east the first weekend in November to defend their title at the annual World Championship Punkin' Chunkin' competition set for Joe Hudson's Eagle Crest Aerodrome on Route 1 on Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 1 and 2. Meanwhile Marvin's been hanging out with Bad to the Bone mascot Bones. They are shown here with Bad to the Bone team members Don Jefferson, left, and Lee Jefferson. "Marvin's been having a real good time," said Lee. "We've taken him to the beach, he drove the Tradewinds VIII in the Boast The Coast Lighted Boat Parade, he's been fishing - just having a good time. He's so spoiled, he may not want to go back to Illinois." Jefferson said Marvin's looking forward most, however, to Punkin' Chunkin' when the frog mascot will be nearby again.
