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.

February President's Message
Happy February, Tigers! You may have thought that this was just the month that you forget to buy a valentine for your significant other, but we can also celebrate Black History Month, American Heart Month and, my personal favorite, Eat Ice Cream for Breakfast Day (1st Saturday of the Month, if you're interested).
The year is off to a great start and we have some exciting programs coming up. Our program committee is hard at work lining up programs for the rest of the year. We would love to have your suggestions for speakers and timely topics. Let's create the kind of fun we political junkies love.
1. Membership fees are due now. Please send yours in or go online and charge it. And talk to a friend about joining.
2. Our 2015 Night With the Tigers is selling out quickly. Be sure to make your reservations soon or you will miss a great time.
See you in the Den, soon!
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.
Tiger Bay Past President Gregory Wilson took home the Tiger at the January 21st Luncheon held at the St. Petersburg Yacht Club for asking Police Chief Anthony Holloway the toughest question of the day regarding his leadership for the City of St. Petersburg Police Department.Click for more winner pics
