Raw Meat Roller Skating August 9: Shot Through the Heart

I <3 Roller Skating

Shot through the heart
And they’re to blame
Coaches, you give love a bad name…

An angel’s smile is what they sell
They promise me heaven, then put me through hell
Skates of love got a hold on me
When passion’s a prison, you can’t break free

Oh, oh, they’re a loaded gun (yeah)
Oh, oh, there’s nowhere to run
No one can save me
The damage is done

Shot through the heart
And they’re to blame
They give love a bad name (bad name)

This Saturday, get ready for some very special guest coaches, Ink Shot and Skatepark of the Mainland Misfits’ Anarchy Angels. Come ready to skate, laugh, and learn! And don’t forget to bring water, because, while they may be angels, they’ll give you a diabolical workout.

What you’ll learn at Raw Meat Roller Skating:

We’ll teach you roller skate, roller-derby style. Expect a variety of skating skills including stops, falls, jumps, agility, skating close to others, pace lines, games and more. We’ll also teach you some basic derby strategy. All of our sessions are non-contact, so you can learn without fear (well, fear of hip checks, anyway—wheels can still be scary!). Our drills teach you the WFTDA basic skills, so if you plan on trying out for a league, you’ll be prepared.

Not interested in derby but you still want to learn to roller skate? That’s cool, too! The skills you’ll learn will help you skate defensively (and maybe a little offensively) around obstacles such as rocks, branches, random tourists and stray toddlers.

What to bring to Raw Meat Roller Skating:

Every skater must have roller skates, a helmet, mouth guard, and wrist, knee and elbow pads—no exceptions. You’ll get sweaty, and you’ll hit the floor, so please dress accordingly.

Sessions are $12. Please bring cash, and exact change is appreciated. There is an ATM at Royal City Curling Club.

Our Schedule:

We’ll be at Royal City Curling Club, 75 East 6th Avenue in New Westminster, every Saturday from 10 AM to Noon all summer long, until August 30.

Starting in September, we’ll move back to Thunderbird Community Centre.

Our Rules:

1. Be safe.
2. Don’t be an Asshat.
