Denver Area Science Fiction Association

DASFA is a Denver club founded in late December 1968, after some differences of opinion between Caz and some of the other CFS members. He placed notices in libraries and other places, and the first organizational meeting took place with about fifteen people present.

Initially, the club met monthly at the Broadway Book Mall with another meeting 2 weeks later at a members house, the 'Alternate'. By the late 70s, it was meeting at the SW State Bank in downtown Denver.

It hosts MileHiCon. Its clubzine is DASFAx. Some of the members of DASFA who would become prominent in later decades included Doris Beetem (whose daughters later became fans) and Don C. Thompson.

Club fanzines included Lungfish. It also published the Dasfolk Filk-Rock, a filk book.

This is a club page. Please extend it by adding information about when and where the club met, when and by whom it was founded, how long it was active, notable accomplishments, well-known members, clubzines, any conventions it ran, external links to the club's website, other club pages, etc.

When there's a floreat (Fl.), this indicates the time or times for which we have found evidence that the club existed. This is probably not going to represent the club's full lifetime, so please update it if you can!
