In our rich history as a club, we have already had Steve Spurrier (twice), Lee Corso, (numerous times in the past) Stan Van Gundy, Lou Holtz and the late, great Bobby Bowden. Who knows "who" the next great personality will be that we bring to Orlando?
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 popular 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!" For our last meeting of the year, we always honor the two high school players of the year as well as the winner of the Coach Ed Kershner / Orlando TD Club Coach of the year award!
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. And yes, not only is it a great venue to host a meeting, The Tap Room is a fabulous place to have lunch and dinner at!
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.
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!
