Raw Meat Meaty Edition: Skate Yer Asses Off

Where: Royal City Curling Club
When: August 6, 2011, 10 – Noon

Here’s the thing. Tiki’s Super Pride Edition last week was epic. It will go down in history for its profound awesomeness. But now, we’re tired. So, if this week’s invitation is less zippy than usual, it’s all Tiki’s fault. Blame her.

Y’all know the drill:
1. Show up
2. Gear up
3. Kick ass

See you at the rink!

Who Can Come to a Raw Meat Meaty Session:

Raw Meat Meaty Sessions are Saturdays from 10 to Noon at the Royal City Curling Club, 75 East 6th, in New Westminster. These sessions have skill requirements. These invitations are not selective—they are sent out to the entire Raw Meat group for information purposes. You can only skate at a Meaty session if you have passed the Raw Meat Basic Skills test, or if you are a current skater or on-skate referee with the TCRG. For this session only, Lambs may join us at noon for an off-skate fitness session in the park near the curling club.

If you are new to Raw Meat, please attend our sessions on Saturdays from 5-7 PM at Thunderbird Community Centre, 2311 Cassiar St. If we are not familiar with your skating, you will not be allowed to skate at a Raw Meat Meaty session.

The Rules:

Everyone at a Raw Meat Meaty session must sign a waiver saying that they accept the risks of skating. No waiver, no skating.

All skaters must abide by our strict non-contact rule. We do not allow hitting, pushing or overly aggressive skating. Any skater engaging in contact will be asked to leave immediately. We do allow hip/arm whips, and safe touching of teammates. (If you aren’t comfortable grabbing people, you should probably take up badminton instead!)

All skaters must wear full safety gear (knee pads, elbow pads, wrist guards, helmets AND mouth guards) while skating. The floor at the Curling Club is very hard, and you must keep your gear on while you are on the skating floor.

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.

Getting There:

The Royal City Curling Club is on numerous bus routes. If you are driving, there is plenty of free parking. If you can give someone else a ride, please do so! Post in the comments to arrange rides (and those getting a ride, don’t forget to chip in for gas).

See You All Saturday!
