The Scouting Report
In 2008, 2009, and 2010, the Tough Cookies were back-to-back-to-back champions of the LA Derby Dolls. Already this season, the Cookies have proven their place as the class of the league with a victory over the Sirens back on August 24. Not to be outdone, the Varsity Brawlers also made a statement in the league’s season opener, defeating the Fight Crew in a heated bout that went down to the wire. This Saturday, in the third week of the 2013 campaign, the Tough Cookies and Varsity Brawlers clash for early-season league supremacy, with the winner maintaining a flawless record and the loser falling to 1–1 and the responsibility of picking up the entire league’s dry cleaning.
The Doll Factory
Reflecting their zeal and do-it-yourself confidence, the LA. Derby Dolls zip around a 100’x60’ banked oval track that they built themselves with the help of friends and family members. The track’s customized slope and elevation enables them to hit breakneck paces normally reserved for cheetahs that can afford their own cleats. Bout attendees can wander over to the factory’s Doll Mall for Stila Cosmetics, apparel and jewelry, food from L.A. food trucks, and visit the Mohawk Bend Bar for craft beers from Golden Road Brewing or a Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum cocktail.
Although fans keep the air moving, the Doll Factory doesn’t have air conditioning or heating, so audience members should dress according to the season. Bout attendees can park their cars for $10 at Silver Lake Medical Center or their motorcycles and scooters for $5 at the Westlake entrance.
Recognizing the opportunities that having such a large track gives them, the Derby Dolls have expanded their community involvement by offering the venue for events such as the TwentyWonder fundraiser for the Down Syndrome Association of Los Angeles.
