GM mailing address? RE: Birthday surprise for my dad's 80th
My dad is turning 80 at the end of April. We've mailed out birthday 'notifications' to everyone we can think of with a self addressed and stamped postcard. We're asking people to write a favorite remembrance of my dad on the post card and drop it in the mail. If most people participate my dad will love going to the mail in the days leading up to his birthday.
OK, so what does George Morris have to do with any of that? Well, way back when he and my dad were riding contemporaries. My dad chose a different career path and life took them in separate directions. However, about 15 years ago my dad and I were auditing a GM clinic and GM recognized him! Gave him quite a nice shout-out too. Dad was tickled.
So I'm wondering that if I mail GM this birthday notification that maybe, just MAYBE, he'll send it back. And dear old dad will get a great birthday surprise.
All of that by way of saying - does anyone know GM's mailing address?
Thanks everyone, and thanks for his mailing address. Why did I not think to check there???
MVP- it's cute to think of GM and your dad when they were 7! My dad's life intersected with GM's much later on, probably when they were in their late 20's early 30's (though I may be off by a few years on that). I believe they both spent time training together at the Lyman's farm, Maui Meadows.
I know this is a ridiculous long shot but nothing ventured...
And here's the ACTUAL story of how Dad and GM rode together, per Dad:
"After the Navy, my riding at Maui Meadows brought me to the attention of Bill Steinkraus and Bert de Nenmethy. That led to them asking me to join the USET training facility at an estate in Grenwich, Conn. I was there for two weeks in the summer of 1957. The participants were de Nemethy, Steinkraus, Chapot and a young rider by the name of George Morris."
Pretty nifty! I'm going to include a note with the above information, hoping it will inspire GM.
I wrote him a letter in middle school - we had to write a letter to someone who worked in the profession we wanted to when we grew up. To my surprise I was the only one in my class who got a response! Now 15 years later I still have it, framed. I just saw him at a clinic and took the letter down, told him how much it meant to me.
