My first paying job was at the refreshment stand at The Valley Forge Music Fair (summer music/musical theater with a tent and round stage), now long gone and replaced by The Valley Fair shopping center, just east of Wilson Farm Park.
I remember seeing Robert Morse in How to Succeed in Business... and Barbara Eden in...something (I have her autograph on a Playbill somewhere).
I was 14 and a friend helped me get the job. I was paid in cash in a bank sleeve-type envelope.

Sprint 2 at Wilson Farm Park (1:4000, 2m contour) near Valley Forge Park, set by AJ Riley. Nominally 2.1 km, 30m climb
Nice course in this open park, but I could not move because of the heat (89F when we started). It would be interesting to see how much faster I could do it at, say, 60 degrees.
Forgot to start my watch until halfway to 2, so adjusted time and distance. No problems with navigation, just with running. Took a few different route choices than Glen did (9-10, 10-11, 11-12), so that's a plus for the course designer. :-)
Orienteering20:16** 2.24 km (9:04 / km) +18m8:42 / km ahr:121 max:154 spiked:11/11c
Sprint 1 next, nominally 1.8 km, 25m
Felt even more sluggish so I walked more on this sprint, only jogging on downhills. Slightly different routes than Glen to 7-8-9.
Didn't stop Garmin when I finished until we were heading back to car, so avg hr is bogus. Time is corrected to what I have on my splits.
I used a rented SI Air card for both sprints, just for practice. Had to wake up 4 controls on Sprint 2 (first one I did) by inserting the stick rather than just waving it at the box. :-P
