Why Join the Flying Tigers?
Some of the many benefits the Toledo Flying Tigers provide are training, public demostrations, picnics, float flys, night flys, fun flys, etc. The lawn maintenance at Westwinds Metroparks is paid for by the Flying Tigers membership dues. Our meetings are held in the Reception Hall of the Bunker Grill at 1950 South Eber Road, at 7:00 PM on the first Thursday of each month. Prospective members and guests are welcome to attend. All current members are encouraged to attend. These are held so that the members can stay informed about what’s happening in the club. They’re also a forum to ask questions and express opinions.
