Next up on Monday, Nov. 29, Tom Luginbill, one of ESPN's top college game day analysts and commentators, is coming back to see us. Ask anyone who was in the room last year when Tom was here, he was outstanding!

That's a fabulous deal! Or just pay a guest fee of $40 and join us for the night. Either way, you'll have a fabulous time with your new friends. You can't lose!

Our final speaker, on Monday, Dec. 20, is Charles Davis; one of our favorite people and a man our club has known forever. Not only is Charles extremely inspirational, he's the perfect person to finish our season and award our high school players and the area's top high school coach their end of the season awards!
In our rich history as a club, we have already had Steve Spurrier (twice), Lee Corso, (numerous times in the past) Stan Van Gundy, (once before) Lou Holtz and the late, great Bobby Bowden. Who knows "who" the next great personality will be that we bring to Orlando? But for sure we have some of our favorite speakers already pencilled in to see us this fall.
But there's more! Along with a wonderful guest speaker at every dinner meeting, we always give you FOUR terrific personalities in Mike Bianchi, Marc Daniels, Steve Gunter and Thomas Tart. That's a lot of entertainment! Plus you always get a wonderful buffet meal included too.
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 the popular mid morning host with "96.9 The Game," delivers a fabulous UCF report at every meeting that excites our growing UCF membership.
Steve Gunter, the terrific host and owner of the Tap Room, always provides a great welcome, a story and a funny SEC video before each meeting.
And of course, no dinner meeting can be complete without a terrific history lesson and prayer from Thomas Tart, our club historian.
Our club has always honored great young men with "High School player of the week awards." Now that 2021 is here, you can expect to hear from more terrific young men during the fall!
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, Vols, 'Canes, Dawgs, Tigers, Wolverines, 'Heels, Trojans, Lions, VA Cavaliers and heck, even all Buckeyes and 'Bama people are welcome at our club too.
For more info on membership, any questions or comments, please contact Gig Sineni at: GLSineni@gmail.com.
All dinner meetings are held inside the "Historic Dubsdread Ballroom," next to The Tap Room restaurant. With a full staff of wonderful people and great food at every meeting, THIS is the place to be!
