Rainbow Curling League looking for players in the mood for fun
With patio season long behind us, the Keystone Rainbow Curling League has swapped frosty cans for sweaters and mug warmers and is busy shooting rocks during the 2012 – 2013 season.
For new vice-president Amber Clemons, the Rainbow Curling League is about more than just competition. Clemons has been part of the league since 1995 and has enjoyed watching it grow since. She emphasized that although the league’s social agenda has grown with fundraisers and bonspiels, it’s really the time that you spend with people after the games that creates the relationships that surround this league.
The appeal of the league is similar to incoming president Mike Read. A curler since he was 13 years old, Read has been a member of the Keystone Rainbow Curling League for the past four years. Read realized that he wanted to curl when the weather plummeted and he realized that he “just didn’t want to play hockey outside anymore.” He decided to take on the position because he felt like the league had given him so much and it was time for him to give back to the curling community. Read becomes president after Mark Kelly, who has stepped down from his role last season.
