Happy Halloween hangover, everybody!
After all of the fun, fear and frolic of Halloween, itâ€™s time to get your tootsie rolling with a good sweat session on roller skates. Hold on to your jujubes as we put you through all the roller skating basics, plus a few new tricks.
New skater? Worried about being a butterfingers? Donâ€™t be! Youâ€™ll be feeling like Mr. Big on your skates in no time. Expert skater? Never fear. Weâ€™ve got a few Trix up our sleeve to show you.
What are you waiting for? Grab your gear, and get your lollipop on the track!
Join us from 5-7 PM at Thunderbird Community Centre on Saturday, Nov. 4, and let the jelly roll!
What youâ€™ll learn at Raw Meat Vancouver Roller Skating:
You will learn the basics of roller 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: 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 Thunderbird Community Centre, 2311 Cassiar St., Vancouver. Itâ€™s very close to Rupert Skytrain Station.
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.
