McDonald’s game out, AHL All-Star Game in for D.M.?

In talking to a few people while at the state wrestling tournament this weekend, heard that Des Moines applied for but was recently denied being the host for the 2010 McDonald’s prep basketball all-American game.

The city still remains in the hunt, however, to host the American Hockey League All-Star Game next season. Both events mentioned were/are earmarked for Wells Fargo Arena. The AHL’s Iowa Chops, an affiliate of the Anaheim Ducks, play in Wells Fargo Arena.

If you’ve never been to WFA for an event, do so. It’s a big-time, big-city beautiful arena that this state is lucky to have.

And the Iowa High School Athletic Association and Iowa Girls’ High School Union are lucky to have its availability for its state wrestling and basketball tournaments.
