Worlwide Rollout Day 11th July 2020

Hello wonderful people of ARRD
Hope everyone is doing good and enjoying a rare glimpse of sunshine

Some of you folks may or may not have heard about the World wide event taking place this Saturday the 11th of July called Worldwide Rollout day which is in support of Building community cooperation and rolling to erase hate.

Worldwide Rollout day was created by @skatefantacee on IG to bring all cities , states, countries, continents together for a united cause.

We would love to show our support and skate to erase hate this Saturday in small groups, social distancing and taking into accounts the government's guidelines on Covid .

All rollers welcome... roller skates, inlines, skateboards, bikes etc. Bring your signs to elevate the issues of Black, Indigenous and People of Colour in our community and internationally. This is also the opportunity to meet fellow rolling folk while coming together to show support. No wheels? No problem! Off-wheel participants are also welcome!

We ask you to
Please wear a mask/facial covering and practice safe distancing (6 feet apart from non household members).

Bring water, hand sanitizer, and protective gear!

Please help out each other as needed.

Do a safety check of your skates (or whatever wheels you’re riding) prior to the event!

Please bring a positive, kind attitude and set an intention to help erase hate in your every day lives.

Beginner skaters please skate towards the front of the group and set the pace.

Feel free to bring a small speaker and skating music

Signs and posters are very welcome

Fur babies sooooo welcome

We are looking at arranging small skating groups locally on Saturday at 1-2pm fingers crossed for a sunny day ! I will be skating at Cramond so if anyone would like to join me that would be awesome. If you are interested in joining in with this event please have look at this doc and add places/ names so we have an idea on what's happening where.

If you still want to join in but can't meet up in one of these places get your skates on and have a skate about your local area that shows great support as well

I look forward to hopefully seeing some faces or photos of folks joining in for this amazing event
