[Melb] Chris' Club House R13 10-08-12: Farewell CCH
« on: August 06, 2012, 05:09:49 PM »


Hi guys, this will be the last CCH. After much deliberation and talking to people, I think this is the best thing to do in the long-term for the community. As I've mentioned before, Shadowlogic is a another city-central venue with setups already there, and more importantly it needs everybody's support to keep running, whereas CCH was pretty much self-sustaining. Basically, it makes no sense to divide our already small player base between two venues.

I'm really, really sad to have to shut CCH down. Thanks to everybody who supported the event, came and brought gear, and hung out together at the Collingwood library. I was quite surprised when I posted on FB and on Ozhadou asking for feedback; a lot of people told me how much they loved CCH and that they didn't want to see it go. So thank you guys for your support, and your words affected me a lot. I spent a lot of time thinking about what to do, and in the end I think the practical reasons for shutting it down won out.

I will always have great memories of CCH. So much great shit went down there. Pre-SS moneymatches, exhibition matches, east vs. west wars, trailer reveals and so much more. I remember all the people I met for the first time at CCH who became community regulars; guys like Burnout and Shadowfox. I still remember the first time I went to CCH and it was still in this portable building next to the library! A big thank you to the Motherfucking Founder and Namesake of CCH: Chris Dang, whom without all this would not have happened. He put a lot of his free time and effort into CCH, and I will always be grateful that he chose me to carry on his legacy.

And now I must kill it.

So! Because this is the last CCH, there is no venue fee. It is Free for the night. (What is the point of accumulating more money.)

So I will use the remaining cash in the Doraemon, (I think it's like twenty or thirty bucks, I haven't counted), top it up with some of my own cash and we'll have pizza for everyone. (As much as the budget allows.)

Also Igor will be bringing two cheesecakes, half and half each.

So!

I need volunteers. All ye who loved CCH, bring forth food! And Alcohol! And drinks! Bring something and we'll all share in the food and talk and reminisce about this great venue and the times we've had here.

This is the last CCH; let's make it a good one.

When: Friday 10-08-12 6:00 pm start.

Where: 11 Stanton St, Abbotsford.

 :'( If only I started going to CCH earlier, this one will be my first, and sadly last. Will try to bring some booze (maybe smirnoff or bombay sapphire or something) though can't make much promises.

Thanks Sharkowski!

Also, guess who I ran into at Bluehouse today?

The M.F. Founder Chris Dang! He was kind enough to give me a $100 of his own cash for CCH this Friday. I'm gonna put $20 of that towards pizza, and $80 will go towards drinks, both alcoholic and non alcoholic. So big thanks to the Founder! Jake aka Street Pussy is gonna go grab drinks with the money, so big thanks to Jake too.

We're getting there in terms of food and drinks, but yeah! Anyone who wants to bring more food/drinks please feel free. Chips, cookies, wings, cookies, anything.Did I mention cookies?

Yo Kevin,

I'm actually ordering from a different pizza place, not Encore, but sure why not. Added to OP.
