It's been a long time since I've posted on Smogon. I graduated highschool. I got a bachelors degree. I've made a start in my career. But I have never stopped loving Pokémon.
I am now the inheritor and owner of a local Pokémon organization based in Anchorage, Alaska. It's not very big, but the facebook group has a little over 200 members, so there is some reach. Not as active as I would like, but keeping it going is a passion project of mine.
Anyways, I've been hosting monthly VGC tournaments. They're not official through Play! yet, but I want them to be eventually, once they get some traction. I doubt there will be any local players who will happen upon this thread, but I want to try anyways. If you or anyone you know is a fan of Pokémon that lives in Alaska, not just VGC, please send them my way. I want to build a big and passionate Pokémon community and that takes a lot of work and motivation. If anyone wants to know when the next tournament will be that I will be hosted, also feel free to ask.
I'm not sure if this post is fully appropriate, but I wanted to at least put it out there that there is a competitive VGC scene trying to spring up in Alaska, and that any help to spread the word is appreciated.
