There will be NO afternoon (Lamb) session of Raw Meat Vancouver Roller Skating on Saturday, June 11. I know, Iâ€™m sad too. But, weâ€™ve cancelled it for a good cause. A roller derby bout! Join us at the PNE Forum to watch the TCRGâ€™s Riot Girls take on the Dockyard Derby Damesâ€™ Tide Pool, and the Bad Reputations take on the Taco Kickers. Doors open at 5, and the first bout starts at 6. You can get tickets online at Ticketmaster, or hit up your friendly neighbourhood derby girl.
Because weâ€™re sadÂ to mis our skate at Thunderbird this week, if weather permits, weâ€™ll meet up for an outdoor skate on Saturday afternoon, and then head over to the Forum. Watch this page for updates on where weâ€™ll be meeting.
Our regular afternoon Raw Meat sessions resume on June 18, at 5 PM, at Thunderbird Community Centre, 2311 Cassiar St. We are running our advanced session in the morning on June 11! Click here for details.
Just because we donâ€™t have a roller skating session this week, doesnâ€™t mean you donâ€™t have homework!
1. Youâ€™ve kept up with your squats, right? And you are putting on your roller skates at least 3 times a week, right? Now, you get to add the most fun exercise ever invented! Burpees! Try to do at least 10 burpees on three days this week. Bonus points for doing more. Here is a video that shows you the proper form for burpees:Â http://youtu.be/PYfNA_lmkHM
2. You are coming to watch derby on Saturday, Â arenâ€™t you? A key element to understanding the action in roller derby Â is understanding the crazy hand signals that refs make. Check out this video, and try to spot our very own TCRG zebras making these signals at the bout:Â http://youtu.be/rit7WdMRxQo
Iâ€™ll see you Saturday!
