Marc Daniels and Steve Gunter!

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.
