Raw Meat Vancouver Roller Skating Dec. 7: Happy Holiday Pie!

What: Two hours of roller skating, with Coach Pie Voltage!
When: Saturday, December 7, 5-7 PM
Where: Thunderbird Community Centre, 2311 Cassiar St.
Who: Everyone who wants to learn to roller skate, or just practice skills and have fun!
Why: Because everyone loves Pie!
How much: $7

Have a Holly, Jolly, Christmas, and be sure to have an extra serving of pie…Pie Voltage that is! Our favourite guest coach is going to bring a sweet, heaping filling of whoop-ass sandwiches between a flaky, buttery crust of skills, spills and drills, with a fluffy whipped topping of a game or two. You know you want to come on out and get a heaping serving of roller skate pie this Saturday!

Are you thinking of taking up roller skating in the new year, as a New Year’s Resolution? That’s awesome! But why wait? Grab your skates, and git ‘er done this Saturday. There’s no time like the present to start working toward your goals. Besides, everyone loves Pie!

What you’ll learn at Raw Meat Vancouver Roller Skating:

You will learn the basics of roller skating, including stops, falls, agility drills, skating form, roller skating in proximity with others, a few fun tricks, and some (non-contact) roller derby strategy drills.

All levels of roller skater, including beginners, are welcome. We’ll help beginners learn to skate, and give more advanced skaters some fun drills and games.

What to bring:

You must have roller skates, and all safety gear: knee pads, elbow pads, wrist guards, helmet, and mouth guard. The venue also requires everyone to use white or light-coloured, non-marking toe stoppers. If your knee pads are black, please cover them with white, non-marking hockey tape. Vertical strips of tape work best.

Sessions are $7, and take place every Saturday from 5-7 at Thunderbird Community Centre, 2311 Cassiar St., Vancouver. It’s very close to Rupert Skytrain Station.

Sessions are drop-in. Just grab your gear and come join us!

Raw Meat has two rules: 1. Be Safe, 2. Don’t be an asshat.

All sessions are non-contact.

A Note on the December Schedule:

There will be Raw Meat sessions on Dec. 7 and Dec. 14, and then we shut down for a Christmas break. Join us again in the new year on Jan. 11.
