Capital Tiger Bay Club
variable air dates and times

The original purpose of the Capital Tiger Bay Club, founded in 1971, was to provide a non-partisan forum on current political issues and listen to the views of newsmakers and opinion leaders of the day. Monthly luncheons are scheduled at the convenience of the speaker.

Local leaders, state leaders, Governors, U.S. Senators and Congressional Members, and the occasional Presidental candidate have made the Capital Tiger Bay Club a critical step—or misstep—in their pursuit of political power and influence.

Founding board members invited Democrats, Republicans, liberals and conservatives who shared a passion for politics. The club has never endorsed political candidates nor advocated a particular ideology. It has always welcomed groundbreaking ideas, passionate ideologues, and insightful discussions; the more outrageous, the better.

Irreverent humor, sharp introductions, and the occasional roasting of members and guests are the mark of a good meeting. If laughter is good medicine, then the members of the Capital Tiger Bay Club can expect to lead long lives.
