For Paige Roberts, becoming one of the 200 active members of Potomac Curling Club in Laurel three years ago led to friendships she never expected when she moved east from Colorado.
“Some of my best friends are curlers now,” the Annapolis woman said.
Roberts and her friends will attend curling “watch parties” as the Winter Olympics start Friday in Sochi, Russia.
“The Olympics are a big deal for us and we’re all really excited about it,” she said. “It’s so good for our club. We get so many new members.”
