<b>Welcome to the celebration of our ONE YEAR anniversary!</b>
<p>We’d like to begin the thread with a quote from our creator, <a href="http://www.honda-pilot.org/forums/member.php?s=&action=getinfo&userid=1"><b>admin</b></a>: <b><img src="http://www.honda-pilot.org/forums/avatar.php?userid=1&dateline=1053117536" border="0" align="middle"> </b></p><blockquote>
<p>"One rainy spring afternoon I was contemplating that I should take <a href="http://acuramdx.org">acuramdx.org</a>'s success and build another community. I built it on the train, commuting from northern part of Toronto to its downtown core. I had it ready in a couple of weeks, and as you all know, on <st1:dateYear="2002" Day="28" Month="5">May 28th 2002</st1:date> the switch went on.</p><p>The site caught on very quickly, due in part to similarities between the Pilot and the MDX, but also due to our great moderator, the Worm, who is kind enough to help me out on both sites.</p><p> The honda-pilot.org was chugging along, until one day I had an email from a stranger (the name escapes me now) who kindly offered me the hondapilot.org domain (no hyphen), which I thought was pretty kind of him. I offered my technical help in return if he ever needed some. So the site can now be accessed through both addresses.</p><p> The crowd on thissite is great, always something fun to read, and of course something fun to see, courtesy of our esteemed picture-provider Kemo. There is never a dull moment when kemo is posting, always keeping me on my toes, making sure the pics are all nice and clean, keeping a special archive of the ones I had to remove, so I can share them with my personal mailing list</p><p> In any case, the site is still growing quickly, which is noticeable by frequent mid-day database errors. Speaking of which, I am planning on getting a dedicated server at some point, just not right now. Ok, gotta go, I think my wife is having contractions ... "</p></blockquote>
<p> Thank you <b> admin</b> and <b> TheWorm</b> for your continued management and support of our site.  We know you’re there, watching our every <i><u>PRICELESS</u></i> ;) move and appreciate your efforts in making our community a place we <i>just can’t stay away from.   </i></p><p><i> </i>Contractions?  Do we have a new baby? </p><p><b>CLASSIC STORIES</b> </p>
<p>One of the most memorable threads was the anticipation of <b>VegasDude</b>’s Pilot delivery.  </p><p><b>Vegasdude</b> was getting his Pilot delivered by truck to his house - because he lived so far from the dealer. Everyone had told him about pre-delivery checklist so he was worried about what if something didn't look right, could he refuse the delivery from the truck driver? Then as the truck didn't show up, and it was getting later and later, he wondered if he would even get a good look at the delivered Pilot in the dark... and contemplated having him drive it to a lighted service station to get a good look, etc...   In the end I think his anxiousness to get his Pilot prevailed and he accepted it as delivered.  <b>CopperPoppy</b>and <b> xyzzy</b> provided a lot of hand-holding during the evening. <br>Read it yourself ... Here’s the thread… <b><a href="http://www.piloteers.org/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=772">URGENT! Need HELP NOW!</a></b></p>
<p><b>Need more classic stories! Can you recommend one?</b></p><p> 
<b>Remember when...</b></p><ul> <li>We hit 10,000 posts at 3 months old - 08/27/02</li> <li>When you could stay away for a day and could actually read ALL the posts in their entirety?</li> <li><b>Sage</b> made the Top 10 Posters and <b> havasu</b> emailed her with congrats & Sage didn't know what she was talking about!</li> <li>Tim @ <b>hondacuraworld </b> had contests to win prizes like:<br> 07/02 - Peterf - Wheel locks<br> 09/02 - Twinkie - Pilot Key Chain<br> 09/02 - Steve Luman - Pilot Key chain</li></ul>
<p><b>Quote from top poster <a href="www.honda-pilot.org/forums/member.php?s=&action=getinfo&userid=4689">Kemosabe</a>:</b></p><blockquote> "Today marks the one year anniversary of <a href="http://honda-pilot.org"> honda-pilot.org </a> and the<br>past year has been an incredible journey. We have surpassed 3500<br>members and still growing strong. (For those of you living in<br>Florida, that's more than 9 new members a day on average.) Many new friendships were made, as well as a few new enemies. But the one thing that brings us all together on this site is our bond with<br>the Honda Pilot -- and what a great site this is. We've been able to share our knowledge, wisdom, and humor as we have written over 57,000 posts!!! As the de facto President, please join me in looking back fondly over the past year's memories and take our first step ahead towards another terrific year!!!" <p> </p></blockquote><p>
<hr>
I'd like to give a special THANK YOU to <b> havasu</b> for her collaboration and expertise in making this a special celebration of our First Year.<br><br>Whether you're just "lurking" around or working towards Post # 4000 we are ALL members of the Honda-Pilot.Org family and I value all of the friendships I've made here as if you were right next door!<br><br>And now on to our Awards… <b> havasu</b> you have the floor. Applause…applause…applause…</p>

We Welcome your input!

Awards will be updated tonight... please post if you have corrections (thanks Pilotless... I thought of you. Should have researched it better.)

AND we need nominations for favorite/classic threads, classic stories etc. Sage and I were drawing blanks last night trying to think of more than vegasdude's delivery story.

What are your favorites? Please post a link.

Remember CopperPoppy's wait for her Pilot? That was a good one.

How about the rat infested Pilot - can't remember right now who's it was.

(Thanks for the unusual pet award!)

I think we can!!! I hope we can!!! I know we can!!! :D

We should have at least 10 Pilots at the luncheon, perhaps more! I think if everyone shows up, then the only color that will be missing is Nighthawk Black Pearl... :(

Glad to be a "charter" member and glad to still be here, even if I'm not a prolific poster.
