Dragonflight initially was a creation of members of The Brass
Dragon Society, a Seattle role-playing group. Those gamers
extended the opportunity to gather at a convention which was
to be called Dragonflight. Members of Western Washington Wargamers,
an all-facets gaming group, convinced the Brass Dragon Society
to embrace all gaming in the Convention and joined in the effort
to create the first Dragonflight in 1980. Eventually they formed a non-profit
organization and Seattle University became the home of the annual
convention for nearly twenty-five years. Some thirty years after its founding, the convention moved to a spacious local hotel. During that time, many area gaming organizations, companies, and individuals have contributed as volunteers to make the convention a success. Every year, gamers forge new friendships, enjoy the camaraderie of fellow enthusiasts, peruse the diverse wares of local vendors, and play countless games.
In 1990, a group of Dragonflight members approached the Board
of Directors with a proposal to join with the Simulation Gaming
Association, a campus gaming group at the University of Washington,
to create Metro Seattle Gamers, a gaming experience which is
one of the nation's few self-supporting clubhouses devoted to
our hobby. The club site remained in the Ballard area of Seattle
until 2007 when it moved to the current location in the Interbay
Throughout its history, volunteers have made Dragonflight great.
If you've enjoyed a convention, or an event, or a day at the
clubhouse, it is the members who make it happen.
