Did they still sweep the parking lot by hand in '83? It was such a joy after hauling garbage for 8 hours to pick up a pan and broom and go sweep the parking lot until 2 a.m.

I don't remember that but they would use the Fire hose and Hydrants and was E Lot and R lot from time to time, and the Employee lot after a concert there. I was a rea pain when I transfered to Warehouse in 86 and would have to drive over the hoses.

We had to sweep every lot that had been used that day plus the traffic lanes down to the bowling alley. For a while employee parking was moved over to Arlington Stadium due to record attendance and we had to sweep that, also. We usually had a crew of 8 to 10 people available, but there were times when there were as few as 3 of us.

On the bright side, the parking lots were a treasure trove of hot beer and stale diapers left by departing guests.
