The Orlando Touchdown Club
Bobby Bowden came and conquered! What a night we had on Wed, Oct. 9. With an overflow crowd of 215 people - the largest in 10 years, we were thrilled to welcome the great coach back to Orlando.
Next on our schedule; Monday, Oct. 21, is the top college FB writer from the Tampa Bay Times, Matt Baker. Matt is a proud Northwestern graduate and never afraid to write what he thinks and tackle any of the tough college FB stories he's watching. Matt will be very entertaining!
Now that we have seen Coach Bowden, it's on to the rest of our season! Considering we had over 100 new guests come to see Coach Bowden, if you had a great time (I know you did!) why not join our club and be with us the rest of the fall season? With FIVE more dinner meetings left in the fall, we are happy to announce a new rate of $235 for anyone who wants to join. That's less than paying 5 guest fees of $50 each or $250! PLUS, any junior members will only pay $220 for the rest of the season. Our membership information is below.
Not only do we give you an outstanding guest speaker at every dinner meeting, we also give you three terrific personalities each night in
MIke Bianchi, Marc Daniels and Steve Gunter! Mike Bianchi, our MC, is not only the top sports columnist for The Orlando Sentinel, he's the host of his own daily radio show on "96.9 The Game." 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!"
Do you enjoy high school FB and seeing great young men be recognized for what they do on the field as well as the classrom? We plan to honor FOUR young men at every meeting up to Dec. 2.
Who is next after Matt Baker on Monday, Oct. 21? On Monday, Nov. 4,
Andrea Adelson, a young but old friend and star reporter from ESPN, the SEC and ACC Networks will be with us. Add other wonderful people we already know well; "Mr. College FB," Tony Barnhart, former SEC head coach, Houston Nutt and NFL commentator and local resident, Charles Davis and you can see how much fun we'll still have in 2019.
Come join us! Or come as a guest and check us out! Our regular guest fee is only $50. But our new membership rate of $235 is better! All checks should be mailed to The Orlando TD Club; c/o Gig Sineni.
