Feb. 13: Riot of Love

Learn to love roller skating with Raw Meat VancouverThis Saturday, celebrate the season of love by getting hot and sweaty, and going much, much too fast. On roller skates, of course! Our special guest coach Percy Riot will teach you all her tips and tricks for skating with style.

At Raw Meat, you’ll learn to roller skate, roller-derby style. We’ll teach you all the WFTDA basic skills, including stops, falls, jumps, weaving, agility, pace lines, and more. All levels of skater are welcome, from beginners lacing up their skates for the first time, to expert derby skaters just looking for more time on eight wheels.

For every Raw Meat session, you’ll need to bring roller skates, helmet, mouth guard, and wrist, elbow and knee pads. Please make sure your toe stoppers are white or light colours, and cover black knee pads with vertical strips of white tape, to protect the floors of the venue. If you don’t yet have gear, you can rent everything you’ll need from Rollergirl, at Main and 11th.

Sessions are $7, and are always drop-in. Please come whenever you can! We meet every Saturday from 5-7 PM at Thunderbird Community Centre, 2311 Cassiar St.

We just have two simple rules: 1. Be safe. 2. Don’t be an ass-hat.
