Raw Meat Meaty Session: Sonic BOOM

Raw Meat Vancouver Roller Skating "Meaty" Session

16 July · 10:00 – 12:00 Noon

Royal City Curling Club, 75 6th Avenue East, New Westminster
Get ready to bring YOUR BIG KID VOICES! This weeks’ Meaty edition is going to be all about COMMUNICATION.Which in pack drills means, we like it LOUD; Neighbor disturbing “shes got to be faking it” loud. That’s right, YOU HEARD ME!

We’re rolling out the boom carpet for TIKI TIMEBOMB and her trusty sidekick DEK HER who will be your superheroes of sound this week.

Do you have dreams of PIVOTING? Think you’d be good at telling your team mates WHERE TO GO? Or just want to assert yourself in EVERYDAY LIFE SITUATIONS? Like telling JERKS to get out of your way when trying to GET OFF OF THE SKYTRAIN? Or telling that CHUMP who is eyeing off the last pair of booty shorts in your size to PISS OFF?

WELL THEN, this week is going to be the LESSON FOR YOU!!!

So start warming up your vocals for the DECIBEL BUSTING edition of RAW MEAT!


By the way “Boom Carpet” is actually a technical term, so there 😛 – http://en.wikipedia.org/wi​ki/Sonic_boom

The Other Details

Please bring a black and a white shirt with you in case we divide into teams. Based on attendance, this lesson will be $10 – $12. Please bring change!

Who Can Come to a Raw Meat Meaty Session:

Raw Meat Meaty 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.

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 come on out if you can’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.

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)
