Sad you arenâ€™t at RollerCon this week? Well, dry your tears, because weâ€™ve got a very special Raw Meat session for you! Please join our veryspecial guest coach Andi Struction, and her lovely assistant, Tiki Timebomb for a two-hour roller derby intensive. If you want to get a (safe, non-contact) taste of a regular derby practice, this is the session to be at.
Andi is an exceptionally talented and experienced skater and coach, and no matter how long you have been skating, youâ€™ll learn something new and valuable from her. Tiki has been a member of the Faster Pussycats and the All-Stars, and is a current member of the B-Team, and she is a spectacular resource on all things derby. Donâ€™t miss it!
Total beginner? Worried you wonâ€™t be able to keep up? Never fear! If you are new to roller skating, weâ€™ll take you aside and help you master the basics (stops, falls, agility, etc.) before you jump in to the main drills. Everyone at Raw Meat progresses at their own speed, and thereâ€™s always room for skaters of all levels.
All skaters must bring roller skates, helmet, mouth guard (essential for this session!), and wrist, elbow and knee pads. Please put your name on the back of your helmet or shirt, and if you can, please bring a white and black shirt. The session is $12, and skaters of every level are welcome.
See you Saturday at Royal City Curling Club, 75 East 6th Avenue in New Westminster at 10 AM.
PS: On Aug. 1, our very favourite session of the year returns! Thatâ€™s right: The Raw Meat Gay Pride edition is back! Itâ€™s never too early to start planning your outfit. More details soon.
