Saint Woody – Insights into UA’s Woody Hayes and Ohio State Football
October 25 @ 6:30 pm-7:45 pm
Legendary OSU football coach Woody Hayes resided on Cardiff Road in Upper Arlington and was inducted to the UA Wall of Honor in 1991. Author and former sports columnist Bob Hunter will share his personal experiences with Woody, discuss why Woody was a great coach (and why he wasn’t), and explain why it is so difficult to pull him out of his era (50s, 60s and 70s) and judge him by today’s standards.
Woody’s story played out in the iconic Ohio Stadium which reaches its century mark this October. Bob will also share the improbable story about how the stadium came to be, what it did for OSU football and how and why it is still around.
An event not to be missed!
Bookseller Cover to Cover will sell books that evening, and Bob will do a book signing at the conclusion of the presentation. We appreciate partnering with this great local business! Pre-event book sales to be announced soon.
Free to attend. REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED. Please register here.
Submissions to our Community Calendar
As a service to the community, the City hosts an online Community Calendar. We invite you to submit details of upcoming special events that are open to and promote government interests of the community at-large, as determined by the City of Upper Arlington.
To submit a calendar listing, please use this online form. We recommend that you submit items at least three months in advance, since we may include some community events in the City’s print and e-newsletters as space allows.
The City will not post routine items such as programs, club meetings or classes. The inclusion of a special event does not represent an endorsement from the City. The City reserves complete control of any event postings on the Community Calendar and has final approval authority over them. Community Calendar postings are not intended to, and do not, create a public or designated forum for private speech of any kind. The City reserves its right to refuse a submission.
Special Event Application Notice
The City has an application and permitting process in place for special events that require the use of City property and/or City logistical and planning support. This includes quarterly submission deadlines in advance of a planned event so that Staff have ample time to review all requests and manage its finite supply of equipment and staffing while balancing its support of longstanding community events with new and unique event proposals.
There is a $100 application fee.
