Annual Ohio State Football Tailgate
October 6 @ 12:30 pm - 3:00 pm
Converse Hall (ROTC Building adjacent to St John Arena and across from the football stadium)
2121 Tuttle Park Place, Columbus, OH
The tailgate will be outside on the southwest corner of the building. Look for the Air Force blue chairs.
Tailgate will start at 12:30 p.m. and run until 3 p.m. – kickoff is at 4 p.m.
All alumni must sign in when they arrive at the tailgate. This is to ensure we get participation numbers back to OSUAA (who is helping to sponsor our tailgate event).
There is no need to bring chairs, food, drinks, or anything! All will be provided.
Game tickets will be handed out at the tailgate. Stop by any time after 12:30 p.m. to confirm we received your payment and pick up your tickets.
Unfortunately, you are on your own when it comes to parking. Parking lots are located all around the campus area. A decent option is located at the Ohio Fairgrounds (I-71 and 17th Street) that has shuttle service back to campus.
Our seats are located in section 8C (upper deck), rows 17,18,19.
For those who can’t physically make it up to that section, handicap seats are available. You can take your tickets to Gate 5 at the stadium two hours before kickoff to exchange them for handicap seats. These seats are limited. If you want to do this option, show up to the tailgate early, get your tickets from us, and then head over to the stadium to swap our your seats.
The cadets plan to hold an icebreaker to get to know us. This is a fun activity and a way for us to share our active duty and life experiences with them. We hope all participate!
Win an autographed football:
In order to raise funds to grow the cadet endowment so it can offer even larger scholarship awards to worthy cadets, the AFROTC DET 645 Alumni Society is raffling off an autographed Ohio State football.
Last year we raised about $1,000 by raffling off a football signed by Coach Meyer and we have a Coach Meyer football again this year.
Raffle tickets are $5 per entry or 8 raffle tickets for $25. All proceeds go directly to the AFROTC Det 645 Alumni Society’s endowed scholarship fund.
