    started as a lifeguard red in 87 season then went to gd red in w/end breaks 89 and stayed in reds until end of june 1991 then went on to the stage crew .
    yes jase Gd reds do last longer or they did in the old days I worked with reds who had been a gd for 8 or 9 seasons. some longer -Kenny jones , Tony sweet , George hammett, smudge, Neil ainsby to name a few and of course the one and only Paul d`arcy Beckett.
