The Orlando Touchdown Club
Our club is having one of it's best 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 join and be part of! Not to mention, you're likely to make some extra good and new friends. I'm living proof!
Next on our schedule; Monday, Nov. 18, is one of our most favorite speakers and friends; "Mr. College FB himself," Tony Barnhart. Being that Tony is so popular and loves to see us as much as we enjoy him, I have a feeling our crowd will be one of the bigger ones of the season.
That said, considering that our fabulous host, Steve Gunter, starts the show at 5:45, I encourage everyone to arrive a bit sooner - like before 5:30.
It's on to the rest of our season. Considering we had over 100 new guests come to see Coach Bowden, if you had a great time (I know you did!) why not join our club and be with us the rest of the fall season? With THREE more dinner meetings left in the fall, we are happy to announce a new rate of $125 for anyone who wants to join. That's certainly less than paying 3 guest fees of $50 each or $150! Our membership information is below.
Not only do we give you an outstanding guest speaker at every dinner meeting, we also give you 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 The Game." Marc Daniels, the wonderful radio voice of the UCF Knights and also with "96.9 The Game," delivers a fabulous UCF report at every meeting. PLUS our host, Steve Gunter, the great and funny owner of The Tap Room, begins each meeting with his entertaining wit, charm and funny SEC videos. Come to any of our dinner meetings and you'll quickly see how much "bang you get for your buck!"
Do you enjoy high school FB and seeing great young men be recognized for what they do on the field as well as the classrom? This Monday, Nov. 18, we will honor FOUR schools; Timber Creek, Lake Howell, Cypress Creek and Lake Brantley. We will have TWO more on Dec. 2 and end the season with our two Players of the Year and Coach of the Year on Dec. 9.
After Tony Barnhart, another familiar face walks in the door on
Dec. 2; former SEC head coach, Houston Nutt. To finish our season on Dec. 9, another big favorite comes back to see us; local resident and celebrity, Charles Davis of FOX Sports.
Come join us! Or come as a guest and check us out! Our guest fee is only $50 and YES, it includes dinner too. Ha Ha But our new membership rate of $125 for the last 3 speakers is better! All checks should be mailed to: The Orlando TD Club; c/o Gig Sineni.
601 Chatas Ct. Lake Mary, FL 32746
