YEAR.IV…The Chronicles 4-Year Anniversary Event…

YEAR4FLYER_sized

Well, it’s that time of year again…. Every October, I like to throw a meet to celebrate the anniversary of The Chronicles, which was created on October 23, 2008. I still remember telling everyone back when the site started that if we ever made it to the two-year mark, I put a meet together to celebrate. The site was way smaller back then so it didn’t even seem realistic that we would have the following we do now. It’s crazy to think that we are now at the 4-year mark. 2012 has been an incredible year for the site and it’s as popular as it has ever been. I never intended to create this site for any type of fame or recognition but I’ll be the first one to tell you that it is pretty cool that people recognize the site and appreciate the hard work that goes into making The Chronicles what it is…

The previous events have been really laid back and I’d prefer to keep it that way. I think one of the best things about the previous two events were because of how chill it was. Things have been so busy this year with all the other shows and meets that I think it’s a good thing that the anniversary meets aren’t typically out of control with cars everywhere. I like to maintain an organized event consisting only of people that know of and care about the site and that is why it isn’t nearly as huge as the annual Eibach Honda meets…

Here is a direct quote from my announcement for Year.Three in 2011. Since it is essentially the same format and event, I thought it would be appropriate for me to just quote it and change everything from “three” to “four” so to speak. I threw in some updated info in there too so please read. I’m busy right now catching up on things, otherwise I would have typed up a whole new post…

Today, I would like to formally announce the official date, time, and location for The Chronicles’ 4-Year Anniversary Celebration…Man, I can’t believe that it has already been another year. Seems like only yesterday that we all gathered together at the Eibach Springs facility in Corona, CA for the 3-year anniversary meet which I dubbed “Year.Three”. To go with a similar type of theme this year, I will deem this event “YEAR.IV””….creative right? Anyways, this meet will be basically the same format as last year, being that last year’s was so simple and easy to organize. We will be returning once again to the Eibach Springs facility because they have been generous enough to offer the lot to me once again, and because the size of the lot makes it very easy to get cars parked and people inside. The annual Eibach Honda Meets have been so successful every year, many of you have become very familiarized with the venue so it should make it very easy for you guys to find.

I make the announcement with it being just a little over one month away because like last year, I want to keep this meet relatively small (compared to some other events) and keep it so that the people there are there because they are fans of the site and not merely going just because it’s just some car meet. I want you guys to know that I really do appreciate all your support over the years and I hope you guys respect my wishes and invite people that you know that actually know what The Chronicles is. It’s like bringing some random ass fools to somebody’s party who have no idea who the other person is, you know what I mean? Things will flow much better if we keep it to the people that follow the site, because they know what I’m about and those people know what type of attitude I expect from people. The lot was kept very clean last year, everyone was respectful to one another, and the meet was just a overall great time. If you plan on bringing some friends, please let them know that I don’t want them to act a fool, or to bring a dog and allow it to shit on the floor without anyone picking it up, or to change their babies or some shit and leave the diaper on the floor. I hate that shit, and the people over at Eibach hate that shit even more, because we have to clean that shit up and I don’t pick up shit for my own friends let alone some stranger…

I will be adding a couple new things this year just to make it more fun but for the most part, it will be very much the same as Year.Three. May will be making her treats once again for everyone to enjoy so make sure to say thanks to her for slaving away in the kitchen to put snacks together for you guys. I will also have a very small number of vendors this year as well who are hand-picked by me, who I feel have supported my site since the early days. Please don’t hit me up for a vendor spot. If I want to have you there, I will ask you personally. Also like last year, I will be presenting a select number of awards for the meet. It’s cool to reward people for building high-quality cars and the trophies will add a little bit of a competition-element to the event. Last year I had the “Chronicles Choice” (which was the “Best of Event” award), Best Honda, Best Non-Honda, and Best Engine bay award. This year will be the same but I will also be adding a “Most Improved Build” award for those who are still in the process of building their cars but have made drastic improvements to their cars since last year…

For parking, it will be the same as before, parking around the rest of the Eibach lot is free, but if you want to park up front, there will be a fee. It won’t be a crazy amount like a car show or whatever, but this helps in the organization process of parking cars as well as paying for various things for the meet, like port-a-potties, materials for certain things, etc. Again, it is up to you if you choose to park in the front. IT IS YOUR DECISION TO MAKE, so don’t fucking bitch about having to pay for a parking spot. It’s going to be a decently-sized meet so parking will be limited. If you want to act like an asshole, believe me, you will be asked to leave promptly. As for it being an “only Honda” affair, like last year, it won’t be but the ones that aren’t are usually friends of the site or heavy supporters. If you guys know me or are friends with the other homies who are basically a part of The Chronicles family, then by all means, you are invited…

I will post up more details as I get to them, for now, hop on Facebook event page for breaking news…

Thanks for looking, and I hope to see you there on October 27th….
