Liberty University Athletics continues the 2006-07 Flames Club luncheon season on Friday at a new location for the event, the Williams Football Operations Center. So far the Flames Club has achieved record memberships this year already surpassing last season's entire total. Through September 1, The Flames Club has 350% more in membership than on the same date last year. 

A total of 135 people attended the first Luncheon of the 2006-07 season (August 25), which was held in the Reber-Thomas Dining Hall due to continuing construction at the Williams Football Operation Center.  Starting on Friday, all remaining luncheons will be held at the Williams Football Operation Center.

Headlining the list of featured speakers for Friday's luncheon will be head football coach, Danny Rocco who will discuss last week's shutout victory as well as Saturday night's home game against Glenville State.
