Thatâ€™s right, our very own Raw Meat alumnus Honey Habanero is going to show us how she puts the heat into sweet. Itâ€™s going to be sugar and spice and everything nice! (If by that you mean hot, hard and sweaty, that is.)
If you have passed our basic skills testing, or are a current skater or on-skate ref with the TCRG, please join us at Royal City Curling Club from 10 to noon on Saturday, May 21, for two hours of advanced roller skating skills and roller derby drills, in aÂ strictlyÂ non-contact atmosphere. It’s all the fun, and none of the beating.
Please bring a black and a white shirt with you in case we divide into teams.
If thatâ€™s not enough sweetness for one day, we are going to have a very special pancake breakfast after our session. Details to be revealed after we skate.
Who Can Come to a Raw Meat Meaty Session:
Raw Meat Meaty Sessions are advanced roller skating/roller derby drillÂ lessons. These sessions have skill requirements. You can only skate if you have passed the Raw Meat Basic Skills test, or if you are a current skater or on-skate referee with the TCRG. If you are new to Raw Meat, please attend our sessions on Saturdays from 5-7 PM at Thunderbird Community Centre, 2311 Cassiar St., and speak to a coach about when you will be ready for the Meaty sessions. If we are not familiar with your skating, you will not be allowed to skate at a Raw Meat Meaty session.
We are running our usual 5-7 roller skating sessions Saturdays at Thunderbird all summer, so come on out if you canâ€™t make a morning session. Or, if you feel like getting even more awesome into your day, come on down and make it a Double Meat Saturday.
Everyone at a Raw Meat Meaty session must sign a waiver saying that they accept the risks of roller 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 ainâ€™t comfortable grabbing some hips, youâ€™re in the wrong class!).
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. Donâ€™t be an Ass-Hat. 2. Be Safe. There is zero tolerance for breaking these rules.
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!
See You All Saturday!
