Raw Meat Meaty Session: On Our Best Behaviour

Welcome to our first regular Raw Meat Roller Skating “Meaty” session, with very special guest coach, Law & Whore’der. I expect everyone to be on their best behavior for our coach, and her fantastic assistant coaches: Reffweiler and Shift Kicker. That’s a lot of authority for one little rink.

It’s going to be awesome.

Expect to step it up a notch with fast paced roller derby drills and new roller skating challenges–but always non-contact! Come early, get sweaty, leave happy.

Raw Meat Meaty Sessions are 10 AM to Noon, at the Royal City Curling Club, 75 6th Avenue East in New Westminster. We have to be out of the venue by 12:30. Please be ready to skate right at 10, and pack up promptly at noon. This session will be $10 to $15, depending on attendance.

Who Can Come to a Raw Meat Meaty Session:

Raw Meat Meaty Sessions have skills 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 a regular Raw Meat skater and you were not able to make the testing last week, message us to arrange testing. 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 sessions Saturdays at Thunderbird all summer, so if you can’t make a morning session, or you feel like getting even more awesome into your day, come on down and make it a Double Meat Saturday.

The Rules:

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 ain’t comfortable grabbing some hips, you’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. Don’t make us sic Reffweiler on you.

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!

See You All Saturday!
