Some info from Richard Pisz- 
Harold Denk and Vernon Davies originated this club. Every Memorial Day we had a giant meet at the Swanstrom Park (named after the founder of ESNA) flying field in back of ESNA where people came from all over to compete in combat, stunt, Navy Carrier, balloon burst, beauty, etc. It was the best of times and a wonderful father-son activity. Henry Himmelman was the secretary, my Dad Frank was the treasurer, and Mr Davies the president of this club from the late 50s to the early 60s. My brother Frank was state champion in 1959...nationals were held in CA that yr. Bobby Morris was the next state champ. We met in the old Civic Center every Thursday evening for our weekly meetings. Great memories. Kenny Wills is still flying! Frank DeCicca was a later club official.
