Are you afraid of ghosties and ghoulies and things that go bump in the night?
How about Virginia Wolf?
Pretty brave, arenâ€™t you?
How about three hours of sweaty, thigh-burning effort on eight, slippery wheels? Does that scare you a little?
It shouldnâ€™t! Come out and play with Raw Meat for our three-hour Halloween extravaganza! Expect tricks, treats, and definitely a few bumps in the night! Weâ€™ll go through the usual roller skating drills and skills, with a few seasonal games thrown in.
Join us at Thunderbird Community Centre, 2311 Cassiar St., from 5 to 8 PM on Saturday, Oct. 26, for three hours of roller skating fun…if you dare…
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.
