Professional football's "Golden Boy" will be a key speaker at the Outdoor Power Equipment Institute's Expo '03 in October. If you want to see the N.F.L. Hall of Famer in person, plan on being in Louisville, Ky., on October 17th for the event's kick-off luncheon.

The Notre Dame University All-American was the first pick in the 1957 N.F.L. draft who won four world championships and two league most-valuable-player awards in his 11-year career with the Green Bay Packers.

The great Vince Lombardi called the Heisman Trophy-winner "the best clutch player I've ever seen." To this date, Hornung is the only player to ever win the Heisman while playing for a team with a losing record.

Hornung is now the executive producer and host of the Paul Hornung Sports Showcase, a national one-hour cable television program on Sports Channel America.

His talk during the "Dealer University" luncheon will inaugurate a two-day curriculum that will focus on service, sales, operations, finance and business. Ariens, Husqvarna, Stihl and Simplicity Manufacturing will sponsor the classroom sessions.

OPEI's Dealer University will overlap with the start of the Expo. Both events will be held in the Kentucky Exposition Center. The trade show will run Oct. 18-20. Dealer University participants will have free parking, special hotel rates and access to a private University Club during the entire event.

For details, phone (800) 558-8767 or visit the Website www.expo.mow.org.
