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 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 always give you THREE other terrific personalities each night in Mike Bianchi, Marc Daniels and Steve Gunter! That's a lot of entertainment! And we give you a great meal too? YES WE DO!
- 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.
- 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 wonderful, Thomas Tart!
Our club has always honored great young men with "High School player of the week awards." Now that 2020 is behind us, you can expect to hear from more terrific young men in 2021!
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 yes, even a few Buckeyes and 'Bama people are welcome at our club. Lol
