From the blockbuster-making team who gave you Raw Meat: Super Pride Edition comes the biggest event of Raw Meat 2012 – Armagaydon! Starring the explosive talents of Tiki TimeBomb (Faster Pussycats), Oscar awards ceremony-viewer Meanest Sly Trap (Riot Girls), Grammy nominee-drowner Siren Says (Bad Reputations), and a star-studded cast of cameos by other famous players, Armagaydon is a meteor storm of action-adventure roller skating that will have you on the edge of your seat forgetting to breathe!
When the Faster Pussycats’ captain realizes the Earth has 18 days before it’s obliterated by a meteor the size of Nunavut, she has only one option – train a ragtag team of rainbow-clad skaters to be send into space to drop a Pride flag into its core. Spectacular props, laugh-out-loud humour, great characters, riveting dance moves and heartfelt emotion make Armagaydon an exhilarating thrill ride you’ll want to experience like there’s no tomorrow.
Note: Costumes and all kinds of rainbow attire are encouraged / demanded to kick off Pride week in style!
About Raw Meat Meaty Sessions
Raw Meat Meaty Sessions are advanced roller skating skills sessions for skaters who are ready to take it up a notch, current roller derby league skaters who canâ€™t get enough time on wheels, and injured or retired skaters who love to skate, but may not want contact. Meaty sessions are a workout, but they continue to be non-contact.
There is a skills requirement to attend Meaty sessions. If you do not meet the requirement, you will not be allowed to skate in these sessions. All TCRG skaters and on-skate referees are welcome to skate with us. Skaters for other leagues who wish to come out must have passed a WFTDA basic skills test. If you are unsure of your level, please contact us or come to a regular session and chat with a coach. Of course, everyone is always welcome at our regular sessions, which start at 12:30.
Raw Meat Meaty Sessions will continue to cover roller skating basic skills, plus advanced agility and technique, as well as a range of roller derby skill and strategy drills. Raw Meat Advanced Sessions will run every Saturday all summer until August 4 from 10 to 12 at Royal City Curling Club (75 E. 6th Ave, New Westminster). Raw Meat Meaty Sessions are $12. If you have skated in a Meaty session, you are welcome to stay and skate at our regular session for an additional $5.
