2311 Cassiar St., Vancouver, British Columbia
It’s a long weekend and who doesn’t love a good BBQ to really get in the spirit of summer? Not Drop Bears that’s for sure!
So let’s turn up the heat and the fun. We’re going to have a great session this week. More of your old favourites – Stops, Falling and Agility. Some burning oldies – Drop Bear Mattress, Pacing lines and Footwork drills. Last but not least, some delicious dessert – Derby Dodge Ball!
You don’t make friends with salad but you do make them with Raw Meat. So come on down for some Raw Meat style BBBQ lamb fun. The extra B is for BYOB (Bring your own Badassery).
Who Can Come to a Raw Meat Roller Skating Lamb Session:
These sessions are open to women who are not ass-hats and would like to roller skate with great people. If you want to learn roller skating skills, roller derby skills, and have fun, please join us. Raw Meat Lamb sessions run every Saturday from 5 to 7 PM at 2311 Cassiar St. Vancouver, with a special 3-hour session on the last Saturday of each month.
Raw Meat Vancouver Lamb Sessions have no roller skating skills requirements. As long as you have all the correct gear (roller skates [quad skates], helmet, knee pads, wrist guards, elbow guards and a mouth guard) you are welcome to attend and skate with us. It is also a requirement of our venue that we use white or light toe stoppers and cover your knee and elbow pads with white or light hockey tape to avoid marking the flooring. No gear, No tape, No skate.
Don’t be afraid to attend these sessions if you are a complete newcomer to roller skating. This is the perfect place to learn to roller skate. We will teach you everything you need to know. On the same token, if you are an advanced skater, come on out! We’ll keep you hopping with our evil floor worms. Want to know more? You’ll just have to show up!
We have two simple rules at Raw Meat: 1. Don’t be an Ass-Hat. 2. Be Safe. There is zero-tolerance for breaking these rules.
We operate in a strictly non-contact environment – no hitting, pushing or overly aggressive skating. But we will cover roller derby drills that involve safe touching of teammates and hip/arm whips. If you’re not ok with touching people, roller derby may not be the sport for you, but you won’t have to worry about getting shoulder checked with us.
We also run an advanced session on Saturday mornings. To attend these you must pass some basic skills testing. If you would like to attend one of these sessions and you are not a currently certified TCRG league skater please contact us or come to one of our night sessions and talk to us about your skating level.
See You All Saturday!
