11th ASK 14 Meeting, Venlo, Netherlands 2019




The 11th ASK 14 meeting took place in the period from 27 to 30 June 2019 on the glider airfield in Venlo / Netherlands. Eleven ASK 14 and one K 12 had travelled to the meeting. Markus Jakubiec with the ASK 14 D-KOIA and Norbert Diener with the ASK 14 D-KBMY were new this year for the first time. For years Alf Lissel has been helping his father Christoph with his first start on the ASK 14 D-KOND. The meeting was organized by Jan van de Ven of the Venlo Eindhoven Zweefvlieg Club.

As so often, Renatas Samulenas from Lithuania had the longest journey to this year's meeting. He came from Lithuania with his wife Giedre and son Martinas. Margaret and David Shrimpton also came from England to exchange experiences with their motorspatz, which like the ASK 14 also has a Hirth F10 engine. The weather was good this year for the participants. Thermal flights up to 4 hours duration were accomplished and also the sunset flights on all three days in formation with up to six ASK 14 were very much fun.

The participants thank the Venlo Eindhoven Zweefvlieg Club, the board and the members for their hospitality and excellent hospitality. Many thanks also to LTB Follmann, who sponsored our T-Shirts again this year.
All ASK 14 enthusiasts can already look forward to another 12th ASK 14 meeting next year. Renatas Samulenas has kindly agreed to host the next meeting at the airport Pociunai / Lithuania. Due to the longer journey, the meeting will take place from 18 to 28 June 2020. First plans have already been made to reach the meeting by air from Germany via Poland.
