Happy sunshine, everyone! I hope youâ€™ve all had a chance to get outside and skate in this glorious weather!
This Saturday, Raw Meat will be three hours of hippity-hoppity fun. Join us at 2311 Cassiar St. from 5-8 for a review of roller skating basics with a seasonal twist. You never know what crazy drills will come tumbling out of our Easter basket of awesome. One thing is for sure: youâ€™ll work off some that chocolate! Come on out and join us. Skating, games, good times, whatâ€™s not to love?
PS: Easter costumes are welcome! (As long as they donâ€™t get in the way of your safety gear.)
Donâ€™t forget! Our time and venue is changing!
Itâ€™s almost time for our switch to the Royal City Curling Club! Hereâ€™s the schedule for the next few weeks:
April 6: 5-7 PM at Thunderbird Community Centre, 2311 Cassiar St. This session is $7.

What youâ€™ll learn at Raw Meat Vancouver Roller Skating:
Weâ€™ll cover the basics of roller skating for women who want to learn roller-derby style skating, including stops, falls, agility drills, skating form, roller skating in proximity with others, a few fun tricks, and some (non-contact) roller derby strategy drills.
All levels of roller skater, including beginners, are welcome. Weâ€™ll help beginners learn to skate, and give more advanced skaters some fun drills and games.
What to bring:
You must have roller skates, and all safety gear: kneepads, elbow pads, wrist guards, helmet, and mouth guard. The venue also requires everyone to use white or light-coloured, non-marking toe stoppers. If your kneepads are black, please cover them with white, non-marking hockey tape. Vertical strips of tape work best.
Sessions are $7, and take place every Saturday from 5-7 at Thunderbird Community Centre, 2311 Cassiar St. In late April, we move to Saturday mornings at the Royal City Curling Club in New Westminster.
Sessions are drop-in. Just grab your gear and come join us!
Raw Meat has two rules: 1. Be Safe, 2. Donâ€™t be an asshat. All sessions are non-contact.
