CCH (FGC casuals meetup)

CCH

Hi guys, my name is Muttons and I help run CCH (Chris’ Club House), a Melbourne institution since 2010. CCH is a community event run by the community for the community, it’s a local meetup that happens on the 2nd and 4th Saturday of every month- where we gather with our sticks and setups and play casuals all day and hang out with each other.

Disclaimer: I am NOT Chris- that is the Founder who you can find out more about in the “history of CCH” below.

When: Saturday (3:00 pm start till late.)


NEXT CCH: Jan 13th at 3PM at the Collingwood Library.

Hi guys, CCH (Chris’ Club House) returns in 2018 in its usual format: the 2nd and 4th Saturday of each month. Doors open at 3PM, and we usually run till after midnight, FGC casuals all day. This is a community BYO setups event – so please bring setups as that means more games for everyone, also if you bring a console/monitor that means you do not pay venue fee. See you guys there and happy new year!

Date: Saturday, Jan 13

Where: 11 Stanton St, Abbotsford. (Collingwood Library, right next to the Collingwood train station)
Fee: $4 venue fee- Anybody that brings either a monitor/console/laptop gets in for free.
BYO: screens, consoles and sticks are all appreciated, even if they go unused. The more the merrier.

A Brief History of CCH

CCH was founded by Collingwood resident and the inventor of the crossup tatsu, Chris Dang, whom I will now respectfully refer to as the Founder. Originally named Collingwood Club House, CCH has been known as Chris’ Club House for years now as a homage to its original founder who saw the need in the community for a console casuals meetup with the divide between Vanilla SFIV console and arcade editions. CCH ran on Fridays from 6PM till late into the wee mornings, and The Founder would always be there with his setups and sticks. Many Melbourne traditions were born from this meetup, such as CPU moneymatches!

Since then CCH has gone from strength to strength, and the relaxed atmosphere of the meetup introduced many new faces to the Melbourne FGC that have since become staunch regulars and top players such as Kevin “Burnout” Kim, Shadowfox and many more. I took over the reins in February 2011 from The Founder (who retired from the FGC in 2011 to be a family man) and together with Ali from Shadowloo, and reliable dudes like Andrew “Vitriol”, Daniel “Spoony” Finegan, Burnout and Peter “Syntax” Evans we ran CCH for a few years before I decided to shut it down in August 2012 with the opening of Shadowlogic over in Footscray.

Now CCH is back in 2014 with the recent shutdown of Shadowlogic for their impending move, and I personally hope we can attract more new players to our scene, level up together and have fun.

Hope to see you guys there!
