Meeting 1/27/22


First Meeting of the Year!

Welcome everyone back to Fightin' Gator Touchdown Club 2022. I hope everyone had a great holiday season. A lot has happened since our last newsletter, with the arrival of Billy Napier as our new football coach. He is putting an amazing staff together.

Our first meeting this year will be on January 27th at 7 pm at the Fairfield Inn on Archer Road. We have a great speaker to kick it off. Former Gator Great JAMES BATES will be making a return appearance!! We also will have Football Season Ticket renewals beginning at this meeting.

Plus in February the Dart Tournament will return thanks to the efforts of Tom Mason and his committee. Looking forward to seeing everyone again and making this the best Fightin' Gator Touchdown Club year yet!

Go Gators!

Eric Cavanaugh
