All AHS Alumni, significant others, elves, friends, whoever

The ALL CLASS Get-Together was originally started by late 1970's and early 1980's AHS Alumni, but All AHS class years are encouraged and welcome. We would love to see representatives from every class.

Plan on attending the 19th annual all class all Alumni Ames High School Alumni Association gathering at Olde Main in Ames, Iowa on Dec 27th 2013
The 2013 Ames High School Alumni Holiday Gathering / Reunion night will be Friday evening, December 27, 2013 at Olde Main Brewing Co. in downtown Ames. We normally take over the place. It's simple, we set the date, you show up, buy your own food or drinks, and, if you're a big spender, for your friends. Then drink up (in moderation of course and we encourage soda pop or water), chat, and get caught up. This has been a meaningful, wonderful reconnection for many people, and we've had classmates from New York, California, Florida, Minnesota, Nebraska, Illinois and elsewhere attend. The holiday gathering got off the ground 18 years ago, in a small way and mostly involving the AHS Class of '77, but has become much more. "We started out with about 30 people a year, but in the last couple of years, this has really taken off," Beeman said. "I rely heavily on the this alumni site for email addresses - and beg people to update theirs -- and that helps. What really got this going, though, is the simple act of friends letting their friends know about it through personal email address books and phone calls. The alumni newsletter and the website also carry notices.

Why?

The idea for an informal All Classes AHS reunion came out of years of discussions among Perry Beeman, Julie (Anderson) Larson, Bill Nutty (all 3 from the AHS Class of '77) and others. The thought was to catch people while they were back in town for the holidays, and to have an informal, relaxing, annual fun gathering (i.e. reunion) for those of us who hate to wait five years for our own class gatherings to roll around. Finally, the trio of big talkers backed it up by actually planning an event.

See you at the next GREAT AHS Holiday Gathering!

The All Class AHS Holiday Gathering is normally held the Friday between Christmas and New Year's. If the holidays hit that day (like it did in 2009 and again in 2010 and 2011) we will pick a different date, but this year date landed perfectly 2 days after Christmas on Friday December 27, 2013.

Please help get the word out. Every year, we have hurt feelings because someone didn't didn't know about it. The more emails and phone calls, the better.

Stats:

Details: Just like last year! Lots and lots of fun and reminiscing and catching up and meeting new AHS Alum. Plus, you see your friends from other classes who you normally don't see at your own AHS class reunion because this is an ALL Class AHS gathering. About 100 AHS Alumni turned out for the 2006 AHS Holiday event, and a record 110 turned out in 2007 from the AHS classes of 1967 to 2003. Some scholars think it might have even been more. The foggy weather caused attendance to drop to 50 in 2008, there was a good turnout in 2009, 2010 wasn't the largest turnout we have ever had, but there was a respectible showing of about 60 AHS Alumni in 2010. Perry says a lot of younger classes are showing up now too and it is harder for him to know who the AHS grads are, so maybe it was more than 60 in 2010.

This is the age of disclaimers, and of course we have one too. This Get-Together is not sponsored by the AHSAA, or anyone else affilated with AHS. We just want to see all our great friends from AHS again.

A stoll back in time - WOI TV videos from 1958

Click here for a WOI TV Seventeen show featuring Ronnie Self and Bop-A-Lena recorded on 2/1/1958. Maybe you are in this video? Later in this same WOI TV show is The Stroll, then here is one more WOI TV Seventeen video with Betty Lou McVay that she calls break dancing, which in 1958 meant switching dance partners. They are all great videos from 1958, and maybe you were there or know someone who was there that day in Ames, Iowa in 1958.

A little bit of interesting Ames High Athletics History from 1955 to 1960

I thought 1958 AHS reunion attendees would be interested in the five year period from the fall of 1955 to the summer of 1960 which produced twelve members of the Ames High Athletic Hall of Fame. The twelve Hall of Famers are Larry Spear ’56, Chuck Lamson ’57, Bob Covey ’57, Jack Stevens ’57, Bill Stuart ’57, Jim Dresser ’58, Gary Ellis ’58, Ben Fellows ’58, Stan Scholl ’58, Larry Munson ’59, Dave Posegate ’59 and Jack Carr ’60. State championships in track and undefeated football teams were a benchmark of this period. Web editor side note: Dave Posegate taught me and many others how to safely drive an auto the summer of 1971, just before I became a sophomore at AHS. Thanks Dave, you were a great driving instructor, teacher, and mentor! (from Ed Hendrickson Jr. 1974 AHSAA volunteer)

1955-1956. The state champions in track were led by Larry Spear, a sprinter. They won in the 440 and mile relays at both the state meet and Drake Relays. They also won the 880 relay at state. Bob Covey (440) and Jack Stevens (pole vault) placed first. Larry Spear also was 4th team all state in football while rushing for over 1000 yards. Ken Wells squad posted a 6-2 record. Wally Linn coached the basketball team to 14-7. The second year baseball team, coached by Ray Smalling, lost only to Council Bluffs T.J. in the districts at Denison. They finished 15-1. Fritz Jackson, Bob Ellis and Jim Balloun were senior leaders on the team.

1956-1957 1956 may have been Ken Wells’ and Ames High’s best team ever. With an 8-0 record and a final #1 ranking by the Register they were led by All- Staters Chuck Lamson, Bill Stuart and Dave Sucher. Fifteen players from this team played football in college. Bill Stuart led the basketball team as a 3rd team All-Stater. Track produced another state championship. Winning four relays at state, they won all but the medley. Jack Stevens won the pole vault at state and shared the Drake title with teammate John Murray. Both were 15 foot vaulters in college. Ames also won three relays at Drake. The baseball team had a 14-1 record and was led by underclassmen Gary Ellis, Jack Smalling and Dave Posegate, who all batted .400 or better.

1957-1958. The 1957 football team picked up where the 1956 team left off with another 8-0 record. Led by first team All-State linemen Ben Fellows and Larry Munson they finished with a #2 ranking by the Register. The track team, led by Stan Scholl, Jim Dresser and Alex Lykkegaard won the state title for the third consecutive year. They won the 440 and mile relays at both State and Drake as well as the 880 relay at State. Stan Scholl won the 440 yard dash. Ellis was a second team All State basketball player on a team that finished 14-6. Gary Ellis and Jack Smalling were named to the first ever CIC baseball all-conference team as first teamers. At Iowa State Gary Ellis was a three year starter at punter in football and shortstop in baseball. David Nairn played #1 on Oscar Ourth’s tennis team. Jim Merchant and David Browning paced the golfers.

1958-1959. The 1959 track team was the only team not to win an outdoor championship, they finished third. However, they were the only team, in this period, to win a State indoor title. They were led by their two mile relay team, winners at Drake, Denny Tice, Blaine Zenor, Lars Laslett and Earl Holtz. Larry Munson, a three year starter and a two time All State lineman, was the backbone of a 5-3-1 football team. Steve Burrell and Gar Smith were the senior leaders of a 11-7 basketball team. Baseball had a fine 15-4 record. Dave Posegate was a 3 year starter and All-CIC. Larry McHone was All-CIC as a catcher.

1959-1960. Another state championship in track marked the spring of 1960. Blaine Zenor (mile run) and Jim Piper (long jump) were state champs as well as the Two Mile Relay. The 6-3 football team won the CIC. Led by first team All-Stater Jack Carr the basketball team also won the CIC. Senior pitcher Gary Kirk had a 17-3 record over a two year period. He, Blaine Zenor and Denny Tice were All- CIC as Ames also won the conference title.

The five year period of 1955-1960 produced four outdoor track championships and one indoor as well as two undefeated football teams. 33-8- 1 was the five year record of Ken Wells’ teams. Ray Smalling’s baseball teams posted a 67-16 record with two years of only one loss. Ken Wells, Wally Linn, Hi Covey and Ray Smalling were the only coaches that football, basketball, track and baseball had. Consistency certainly marked this period in Ames High Athletic history.
