Orlando Touchdown Club
Now that a wonderful spring meeting with UCF coach, Gus Malzahn, is in the books, it's time to look ahead to our Fall season.
We are happy to announce Tony Barnhart, "Mr College Football," will be our first speaker of the fall season! The date is Wednesday, Sept. 8. Tony has been with us a dozen times and he is clearly one of our favorite speakers! We know Tony from his time with ESPN, the SEC Network and CBS Sports, just to name a few stops. Today Tony enjoys writing for Sports Illustrated. We can't wait to see him again.
Earlier we announced Terry Mojajir, the new and dynamic Athletic Director from UCF, will be our speaker on Monday, Oct. 18.
Due to Labor Day, we start on a Wednesday. Otherwise it's every other Monday to Dec. 13. Our schedule:

Would you like to join the Orlando TD Club? A full season (eight dinner meetings) only costs $325!
OR pay a guest fee of $40 and join us for the night! One benefit of paying a guest fee, if you enjoy your experience and want to join a college FB club filled with people like you, we'll apply the $40 paid towards a full year's membership. You can't lose!
All checks should be made out to the Orlando TD Club. Please have all checks mailed to: Gig Sineni 601 Chatas Ct. Lake Mary, FL 32746.
Would you like to bring a friend with you as a new member? Do so and you can take $50 off your own membership! Bring TWO new members and save another $100! That's a great deal!
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? 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 2020 is behind us, 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. Lol
