QB Club Memories: Member Gary Fernandez at the 1984 QB Club Event

Thanks to QB Club Board Member Gary Fernandez for sharing this memory from a 1984 meeting with the Bronco team at a QB Club event.

Hi my name Gary Fernandez my first experience with the Denver Broncos QB club was September 10th 1984. My parents and my cousin alan and Joe ann invited me to go to the event. It’s something that I cherish to this day. The broncos had come off a loss in Chicago where Elway didn’t play Kubiak started and got hurt. I could not believe how nice and courteous all the players were and found the QB club members were just as nice. I have one of the best memories of my parents on that day as I look at my mom turn into a shy little girl when she met elway. I can tell you since I’ve been back at the qb club chance to meet listen to.players stories , radio personalities and our own club members have some great stories has been a joy.

Our board and members make you feel right at home .Thank you Denver Broncos and Denver Broncos qb club for that great day 33 years ago a day I’ll always remember , and for more great memories still to come …… Gary Fernandez Go Broncos
