Welcome to the Tigers' Den
The Suncoast Tiger Bay Club is a unique, non-partisan political club, founded in 1978 to foster a better understanding of public issues. The Club meets regularly for lunch (usually twice a month) to hear guest speakers on all types of political and public issues of interest. Visit our Calendar to see who will be stepping into the Den next! A convenient online RSVP form allows you to reserve right from the web site.
Our members, called "Tigers," come from all walks of life: big shots and those just loading their guns. The single common thread is an acute interest in politics and public affairs. Interested in joining? Check out our Membership page.
We have ongoing programs to encourage youth to take interest in public affairs. The Young Tigers page has more details. We also give annual Awards that recognize outstanding leadership, and much more.

Fang & Claw
What’s all this about a “Fang & Claw?”
Perhaps the most appealing benefit of membership is the ability to participate in Question & Answer sessions with our speakers. The coveted "Fang & Claw Award" is presented to the member at each meeting who "slashes through pretension and prevarication" with the toughest question of the day.
Past President Gregory Wilson took home the Tiger at the July 24th luncheon held at the St. Petersburg Yacht Club. He asked Brian Auld with the Tampa Bay Rays, "the impact of the District 7 City Council race on the Rays Stadium".
