In case I havenâ€™t mentioned it lately, you guys are fabulous. All the Raw Meaties totally make my day, and itâ€™s a privilege to skate with you all.
So, come on out on Nov.3, and letâ€™s have some fun.
What youâ€™ll learn at Raw Meat Vancouver Roller Skating:
Weâ€™ll cover 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.
What to bring:
You must have roller skates, and all safety gear: knee pads, 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 knee pads 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 2311 Cassiar St.
Raw Meat has two rules: 1. Be Safe, 2. Donâ€™t be an asshat. All sessions are non-contact.
