Orlando Touchdown Club
Our NEXT dinner meeting will be Monday, Nov. 30. That's a change from the previous date of Nov. 23. Our guest speaker will be Matt Stinchcomb. Matt works for ESPNU and the SEC Network as a game analyst and contributor. The one time college All American and a #1 draft pick from the Univ. of GA promises to be a most enjoyable personality for our members to meet and get to know.
Here is our 2020 season lineup:
Sept. 14 Bill Cubit, longtime college coach
Sept. 28 Shane Matthews, former UF and NFL QB
Oct. 12 Matt Murschel, college FB writer, Orlando Sentinel
Oct. 26 Andy Staples of The Athletic and XM radio Channel 84
Nov. 9 Tom Luginbill of ESPN
Nov. 30 Matt Stinchcomb
Dec. 7 Charles Davis, CBS Sports NFL commentator
Feb. 1 Tony Barnhart of Sports Illustrated
Because we think a National Championship game will be played in January, we have asked our good friend, Tony Barnhart, to be our last speaker of the year on Mon, Feb. 1. What a terrific way to have a final season review and bring everyone together one last time!
Would anyone like to join for the last 3 dinner meetings? $125 is all it will cost! Please bring your checks to the door and we'll welcome you on Mon, Nov. 30.
Not ready to join but come as a guest? Our guest fee for each of the remaining dinner meetings is only $45.
Please make all checks payable to the Orlando TD Club.
We have already had Steve Spurrier (twice), Lee Corso, (numerous times in the past) Stan Van Gundy, (once before) Lou Holtz and
Bobby Bowden. Who knows "who" the next great personality will be that we bring to Orlando?
Besides a wonderful guest speaker at every dinner meeting, we 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." And lucky for us, Mike gives us his own college FB commentary at every meeting.
- Marc Daniels, the wonderful radio voice of the UCF Knights and also
a mid morning host with "96.9 The Game," delivers a fabulous UCF
report at every meeting that excites our growing UCF membership.
- Lastly, Steve Gunter, the terrific host and owner of the Tap Room, always provides a great welcome and a funny SEC
video before each meeting.
Along with Mike, Marc and Steve, no dinner meeting can be complete without a terrific history lesson and prayer from the club historian, the honorable, Thomas Tart.
Our club has always honored great young men with "High School player of the week awards." Expect to hear from more terrific young men in 2020!
Our location for all TD Club dinner meetings is the Historic Dubsdread Ballroom, next door to The Tap Room, just off Par St. and I-4.
WHO is your favorite college team? Whoever it is, you'll have plenty of company! All Gators, Knights, 'Noles, Irish, Crimson Tide, Vols, 'Canes, Nittany Lions, Dawgs, Tigers, Wolverines and even Buckeyes are welcome at our club.
