Reportedly Charles Buddy Allie has been an understated superstar for years. But his latest statement, a couple weeks after turning 65, deserves some pretty loud cheers.
|WAY TO CELEBRATE—Buddy Allie on his new Harley.
At a Potomac Valley Track Club meet in September, he shattered world records in the 200 and 400, with astonishing times of 24.85 and 56.28—bettering listed WRs of 25.20 by American Steve Robbins in 2008 and 56.37 by German legend Guido Müeller in 2004.
On Oct. 20 the crowd cheered for Allie once again as he formally celebrated his Aug. 20 birthday with a party at the Pittsburgh Airport Marriott. The party started right, the party started swiftly with TeeJay the deejay keeping the crowd on their feet. More than 200 guests enjoyed a great meal, mouthwatering cake and at 10 p.m. there was parking on the dance floor. The lights in the ballroom went up and a brand new shiny 2012 Harley Davidson was rolled to center stage. This was Allie’s gift to himself. What a way to celebrate 65 years of age.
As only one of five presidents (more than 30 years) of the United Rays Corvette Club, Allie has always liked things that go fast. Allie retired as an Industrial Technology Shop teacher with 35 years of service teaching middle school at Columbus Academy, Allegheny Academy and Frick International Academy. He also coached middle school soccer and basketball. During his teaching career, he was selected for summer internships at the American Association for the Advancement of Science at George Washington University (1987) and at the Robotics Career Awareness Institute at CMU in 2005.
