Marriott Stock

Here is a good story for Show Ops Employees

In '77 the show ops dept had a general meeting in Theare Royale
and during the meeting they announced they hid 1 share of Marriott stock
under 5 seats in the theater -

I was fortunate enough to have been sitting in the right seat.

Well I have NEVER sold that original share of stock that I won.

A few days ago I received a notice from The Marriott Corp that the stock had split - this is the 2nd time in 29 years that the stock split.
and that original stock is growing into a nice little mini-nest egg! :)

I wondered if they continued this practice? and did anyone else who won keep their shares?

hope everyone from show ops will be attending the reunion

I never heard of MGA doing anything like that.
How very cool!
Did you ever buy any more Marriott's stock after that?

Thats so interesting!

I dont think that a company would do anything like that anymore, then again, sometimes some buisnesses do some crazy things to get people, but I wouldnt count on it happening again.
