Team members lobbed pumpkins to one another in a variation on that old standby, the "egg toss," aiming for the greatest distance with the least mess. Participants also could burn off steam by smashing pumpkins with a baseball bat or join in a pie-eating contest, all before fraternity members grabbed shovels and trash cans to leave the premises as they found them.Photos by Erin M.
