10 Years of CAFCNA
« on: 03/11/12 06:17 AM »

Well CAFCNA made 10 years old this year

On January 10, 2002 Chief bought the URL
On January 15, 2002 Website and forum went worldwide.

CAFCNA HISTORY

Hard to beleive that I visit this site everyday for most part of 10 years about a truck.

I want to say thanks to all the members who have come and gone over the years

Especially our Charter Members who kept the site alive for most part in the first couple months

Also special thanks to our wonderful volunteer staff who keep the site SPAM & DRAMA free over the years.

Happy Belated Bday CAFCNA.

I wish that I could have found my truck years earlier! I love this site and even though I'm only working on having my truck for the first year, I'm looking forward to at least 10 more!  :B:

I was researching the Avalanche and found this site in late January of 2002. I bought the Av, actually did the build and order and took delivery in mid February. The second day I owned it I decided to buy some add ons. My son and I went to a local bike shop and I bought a hitch type bike rack. Was a fairly warm winter and I was already looking forward to summer and some great outings using the truck. I had an accident in the home and spent the next week in the hospital. I got to watch it snow from my window while my brand new made for the snow truck was parked in the garage. :E: I did so many mods because of the people on this site. Heck I still have the truck because of you people. I never keep a vehicle this long. I'll add more later maybe comment as members recall their favorite drama moment or character.lol Thanks for making me feel welcome for over 10 years and here's to 10 more.

People joked about my Avalanche and internet addictions before I found the club,
then they heard about the CAFCNA forum and GTGs.  ::)  :laugh:

My thanks to the founding members, the staff and all the rest of our sometimes dysfunctional family members that make this such a great website.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY CAFCNA!!!
I stumbled on this site just after I got my Avy, my first GTG was the 2011 Nationals in Michigan. Since then I have made lots of new friends and have fed my modding addiction regularly. Thank you for the hard work and dedication you put into this site.

A very Happy Birthday CAFCNA ! I went looking for a forum after I saw groups of AVY"s coming home from the nationals in SD. Never knew there was a club until I saw groups running down the I-15.

I joined July of 2010, a few days after picking up my truck. I had an issue with my passanger side wiper not working so I googled the problem and this site was one of the results. Clicked on it to find the solution to my problem. I then looked around and saw all the useful info there was and had to join. Like most it's also my first forum, I don't spend much time on a computer at all but I do check in here daily, I look forward to see what's going on !

Happy birthday, and thanks to all

Happy birthday/anniversary CAFCNA!

May you have many more too!

I first saw the AV on a morning news show about the New York auto show and Chevy's new concept truck that was going to hit the dealerships soon. I liked the features but thought the side cladding made it look like a toy. Later on I discovered to appreciate the cladding but got a WBH in 2004. I then searched the web to find more info on the AV and discovered this site. I have met several great members at GTGs and miss the enthusiasm of the early years.

Happy Birthday CAFCNA. This site is such a great community, and is a great example of what a positive, helpful group of people can add to the Web. I've learned so much from so many here who have taken the time to share, document and discuss what they have done, I am in deeply your debt. Thanks to all!

I've been a member since my first AV, am now on my second, and am seriously contemplating a third. I am one of those that is shocked at the idea that there will not be a 'midgate enabled' vehicle in GM's lineup come 2014.

What are they thinking???

I think it'll be back in some shape or form in rather quick fashion. Don't fret it.

Joined May 12, 2003 (Almost 9 years for us.) not too long after we purchased our beloved 2002 Z71 AV, Miss Indigo.  Since then I have been on a total time of 33 days, 8 hours, and 21 minutes and racked up a modest 813 posts.

Over the years I have met new friends, learned things about our AV, and received many answers to questions that have arisen.

Thanks to those that have kept this site up and running, and to the many members that give of their time freely to help those of us that post questions or have looked for advise.
