Captain Tasso Kiriakes of the 2020 Daytona Beach Quarterback Club.
As a twelve-year-old, I found myself at the Americana Beach Lodge Ballroom, sitting at dinner with my brother, waiting to hear and eventually meet, my childhood hero and NFL champion quarterback Bill Wade. As a fifteen year-old, I sat with my record breaking Father Lopez football teammates to hear NFL Hall of Fame football great Otto Graham speak, and for our team to be honored. Those are just two of the many memories, friendships and experiences that have me so excited to be the 2020 Daytona Beach Quarterback Club Captain. What an honor and adrenaline rush!!!
Each day I get up and remind myself that I am in the shadow of some of our community’s most dynamic leaders who were previous captains of this great club. I am in awe and have pledged to make a 74th Quarterback Club season one to remember. The tradition of the Daytona Beach Quarterback Club is to have our community’s most successful businessmen and women, leaders and businesses be present and active in our club.
If you like football, you will LOVE the Daytona Beach Quarterback Club!!! Our speakers list is a who’s who of football history. Super Bowl champions, MVP’s and all-pros are highlights on a list of interesting speakers, all of whom know the game of football inside and out. Franco Harris, the central figure in the Immaculate Reception (the NFL’s #1 play in the 1st 100 years of the NFL), is the centerpiece of our great speakers list this year. Whether you like NFL, college, or high school football, you will get a “fist full” of great highlights, good times and camaraderie with the people who are in the know, while having fun enjoying the game we all love.
I want to invite you to be part of our great group of football fans. At the Daytona Beach Quarterback Club, you will meet businessmen, businesswomen, and friends who share the same passion for the pigskin as you. Some people choose to play golf to develop a great social relationships and business connections (that is if you can play golf). At the Daytona Beach Quarterback Club everybody can enjoy a drink, eat some great food, brag about your team and share a laugh with a great group of friends and speakers. Your membership fee includes 10 meetings, complete with our happy-hour tailgate, hors d’oeuvres and drink specials, a weekly pool sheet with cash prizes, as well as a sit-down dinner.
Once again, I want to encourage you to join the excitement, energy and camaraderie, of our great organization that is the Daytona Beach Quarterback Club. We kick off our season September 14th, 2020 at the Daytona Beach at the Plaza Resort & Spa. It’s time to get off the bench and score for your team as a Member of the Daytona Beach Quarterback Club.
Please direct any and all membership questions or concerns to John Adams at JohnAdams@adamscameron.com.
Thank you and I look forward to seeing everybody at the first meeting.
