History

The Gap’s involvement with interclub matches started in the late 1960s when the club first entered teams in the Singer Cup, the premier interclub competition for chess clubs in the Brisbane area.
The Gap Chess Club won the Singer Cup in 1971 and 1974, and also finished runner-up in 1969, 1970, 1972 and 1975.
The club continued to compete in the Singer Cup through the 1980s and in its successor tournament the Phoenix Trophy in the 1990s.

 

The Gap has had a close relationship with the Northside Club (previously Nundah Chess Club) with several players members of both clubs, notably Harvey Quaresmini, Doug Foster and Brian Willcock.
In 1988 The Gap and Nundah CCs had a shared tournament structure known as the Twin Club’s Cup which encouraged players from both clubs to participate in each other’s tournaments.

 

In 2002 The Gap CC played against the Brisbane Christian Fellowship at the instigation of Ray Adams, a former Gap player who had just returned to the club as an active member.
The following year saw The Gap commence playing neighbouring clubs (
Samford Valley and Northside) on a home and away basis.
Doug Foster was instrumental in the setting up of the Samford club in 2000.

 

In 2002 The Gap participated in the initial Queensland Clubs Teams Championship and finished a creditable fifth from seven teams.
