The Orlando Touchdown Club
OUR Fall, 2019 opening night dinner meeting on Sept. 9 with
Andy Staples was a huge success! Thanks to everyone who came. On Monday, Sept. 23, former Gator great and current broadcaster for the SEC Network, Chris Doering, will make his first appearance to see us!
Coach Bobby Bowden is coming to see us this Fall! The date is Wednesday, Oct. 9. Today we are announcing a SELL OUT for that evening! Meaning we have stopped selling all guest tickets.

Besides a fabulous speaker at each dinner meeting, we're also giving you three terrific personalities each night in MIke Bianchi, Marc Daniels and Steve Gunter!

Marc Daniels, the wonderful radio voice of the UCF Knights and also with "96.9 The Game," delivers a fabulous UCF report at every meeting. PLUS our host, Steve Gunter, the great and funny owner of The Tap Room, begins each meeting with his entertaining wit, charm and funny SEC videos. Come to any of our dinner meetings and you'll quickly see how much "bang you get for your buck!"
