A Brief History of CCH

CCH was originally 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!
