Club History

This page is under construction. (last updated 13/4/22)

The club was formed in 1946 and has operated from a number of sites in the Tauranga region. Unfortunately many of our early records have been lost. (If any of our senior or former members have any recollection of the early days of the club, please contact taurangamodelfly@gmail.com, so that your experience can be documented for our records)

Recent history – a summation from Peter leaver . This covers the period from around 1980 to the 1990s.

Building TECT Park

TECT Park has been established in a previous forest block. The forest had been cleared but the site was overgrown and a hill had to be removed to create a flat area. Many tree stumps and fallen logs had to be dug out and removed.
