To promote its eighth season, the "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" crew will host The Sunny Challenge, taking place at Xfinity Live, Sat., Aug. 4.

Here's what's in store: 

Mac’s Lucky Hockey Puck Shot
Don your black duster, practice your karate and see how many pucks you can shoot through a small hole in a hockey net to rack up points. You may not have 20,000 screaming fans watching you, but don’t crack under the pressure!

Jersey Shore Dunk Tank
Remember how mean the waitress was to Charlie on the Jersey Shore? We do too! So now is your chance to get revenge on Charlie’s behalf. Participants will have three tries to “sink” The Waitress. You’ll get more points the farther away you try, so don’t be a wuss and throw it from the kid’s line!

Charlie’s Garbage Dive
No one will ever find more treasure in trash cans, dumpsters and road side ditches than Charlie Kelly, but now is your chance to one-up your friends in trash picking. Cans will be set up and filled with “trash” (don’t worry, it’s not that kind of trash) and inside each one will be 10 different items for participants to find in a 30 second time period. The more things you find the more points you score, so get digging!

Frank’s Rum Ham Toss
Do we really need to explain this? Grab the rum ham, wind up and toss it as far as you can. Now, how hard was that?

Dennis’ Speedo Relay Race
Dennis Reynolds defines the male form. Well, that’s what he tells himself in the mirror each morning. You may not fill out a speedo quite as well he thinks he does, but you will have the chance to see how you look wearing one on top of your pants while running and stopping along the way to put on various other articles such as flippers, goggles, a swim cap and “swimmies” in the shortest time possible. Yeah, it ain’t gonna be pretty but it sure will be fun.

What? No exhbitition of game of Night Crawlers? And, no Flip Cup? For shame organizers.

To pre-register, go here. The eighth season of "It's Always Sunny" premieres on Oct. 11 at 10 p.m. on FX.
