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 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!
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.
