Thought I'd share some old photos from the Rancho Cocoa FLICKR archives, some old photos that were taken before the blog existed...here are some photos from the MAD HATTER'S TEACUP RIDE in DISNEYLAND, from a whirlwind weekend trip to California in December 2007...
One day we were at Disneyland and then the next day we were at the DERBY DOLLS ROLLER DERBY CHAMPIONSHIP in some nondescript warehouse somewhere in Los Angeles...the final bout was between the FIGHT CLUB and THE SIRENS, who wore police-style uniforms. The Sirens were able to administer an LAPD-style beat down in the end. As usual, photos were strictly prohibited, but I managed to take a few photos anyways...
