Each week, team captains and the rest of the members will be tasked with dunking as many medallions as they can during a set amount of time. 

As a reminder, the teams can start their two-hour period during the following times. 

  • Week One: May 3, 12 AM PDT – May 9, 12 AM PDT 
  • Week Two: May 9, 12 AM PDT – May 16, 12 AM PDT 
  • Week Three: May 16, 12 AM PDT – May 22, 12 AM PDT
