We were fortunate to be able to visit Austria last month. Albert Vetter, Wolfgang Alge and Roswitha Schrattenecker-Alge were great hosts as we sampled great food, beautiful scenery and learned more about their great products. Of course there has been effects of the various waves of Covid. We are happy to report that the shelves are well stocked with the well built and designed timers and accessories. Phoenix Sports will be fully stocked for the ski season .

Prior to ALGE we visited Saas Fee, Zermatt, the Furka pass and Zurich. Afterwards we explored St Anton, Zurs, Lech, Innsbruck, Garmisch Partenkirchen  and kms and kms of wonderful scenery and wonderful experiences.
