HONOLULU – Pacific Roller Derby is hosting a Fresh Meat Fun Day on Saturday, October 6th at 9 a.m. at the outdoor roller hockey rink at Kamiloiki Community   Park in Hawaii Kai. The Fresh Meat Fun Day kicks off the league’s fall recruiting for the 2013 season. Led by veteran All-Star Hulagans’ skaters Melee Antoinette, Calamity and a number of other seasoned derby athletes, this on and off-skates fun day gives prospective roller girls—fondly referred to as fresh meat—and referees the chance to try on roller derby gear, learn the basics of roller skating and the rules of roller derby.

No experience is necessary to participate, and participants of all athletic abilities are welcome. Pacific Roller Derby welcomes skaters ages 18 and up. Pacific is also recruiting for Oahu’s first Youth Roller Derby League for girls ages 6 to 17 years old. Women interested in participating in Saturday’s training camp should bring a mouth guard, bottle of water, athletic shoes and a towel. Gear and skates will be available for loan on a first come first serve basis. More information can be found at Facebook.com/PRDFreshMeat.
