As we continue to expand Pathfinder Society to areas where players are looking for organization, it’s important to me to find the right people to serve as ambassadors of the game, to present it in a positive light for new players and to try to bring veteran players who have left back into the fold. Four more Venture-Captains have been chosen to fill those roles.
First, I wanted to note that Dan Simons has moved from Washington D.C. to Baltimore. He has resigned his Venture-Captain position in Washington D.C. but has taken the mantle as Baltimore’s new Venture-Captain. Players in that region are lucky to have an experienced leader to spur growth of organized play in their hometown.
Taking over as the Washington D.C. Venture-Captain is Mike Alchus. He comes into the position extremely motivated and well-advised, and is ready to extend his region of responsibility as far south as Fredericksburg and Spotsylvania, VA, and as far north as Columbia, MD. If there’s interest, he may also stretch his region out to Leesburg, VA, and possibly Mechanicsville, MD.
I am also excited to add three new areas to our Venture-Captain regions. The first is Oklahoma City. Michael Kirk plans to grow Pathfinder Society in Central and Western Oklahoma, as well as North Texas.
It also is exciting to add both east and west coasts of Canada to the mix. On the east, Jonathan Bilodeau will be overseeing growth of Pathfinder Society in Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Newfoundland, and Prince Edward Island. On the west, Anthony van Poppelen will be looking to grow Pathfinder Society in all of British Columbia north of Quesnel. He will particularly focus on the region in and around the University of Northern British Columbia. I am excited to see how much more Pathfinder Society can grow in Canada.
We’re still in need of additional Venture-Captains in some regions, though! Check out the list of regions we're looking for and the first phase of the application process on the Get Involved! page. If you’re interested in applying, please contact me after reviewing the application process in the previous link.
Welcome aboard to all my new captains!

Venture-Captain, Texas—Dallas & Ft. Worth
I got the chance to meet Mike Alchus at Gen Con, and I'm sure he'll be a great asset to the players in D.C. I'm particularly happy to have Mike Kirk on board -- I've sat at several tables with him in other organized play campaigns and I'm certain he'll be a great asset to OKC and western Oklahoma players.
