The Orlando Touchdown Club
In 2019, OUR club had one of it's best EVER years! And make no mistake about it, Bobby Bowden's appearance to see us on Oct. 9, like Coach Lou Holtz last November, 2018, was more than wonderful for us. We're a great club to be part of! Not to mention, you're likely to make some new and extra good friends if you join.
For 2020, there will be NO rate increase! Our membership fee remains at $325 and any Junior members under 40 only pay $275. OUR NEXT MEETING? We plan to meet in March or April for our annual SPRING dinner meeting. Please stay tuned.
For all of 2019, we gave our members an outstanding guest speaker at every dinner meeting PLUS three terrific personalities each night in
MIke Bianchi, Marc Daniels and Steve Gunter!
- 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
- Marc Daniels, the wonderful radio voice of the UCF Knights and also
with "96.9 The Game," delivers a fabulous UCF report at every
- And Steve Gunter always provides a great welcome and a funny SEC
video before each meeting.
If you enjoy high school FB and seeing great young men recognized for what they do on the field as well as the classrom, we made a special point to award 2 - 4 young men at every dinner meeting.
Our 2019 lineup was fantastic! Our members agreed.
