One thing that makes Aksarben Curling great is our members! We're going to periodically feature our members so folks get to know the friendly faces throughout our organization. This week: Adam Leong!

Adam has been a longtime volunteer at our Learn to Curls. You'll often see him at our Sunday 2:15pm leagues (where his team won the recent fall league and a spot in our season championship in April!)

I did my first Learn to Curl in Kansas City in 2008. It was a 2 hour drive from where I was living in Columbia, MO but totally worth it. I didn’t start curling regularly until 2018, when my family and I moved to Omaha.

How did you first get involved with the Aksarben Curling?
As soon as my wife and I decided to move to Omaha, I looked up where the nearest curling club was. I joined a league that winter with 3 others who had just done a L2C the Friday before. Doug and I have been curling together ever since.

What is your favorite curling moment?
Watching wise, it was definitely watching Team Shuster win the US Olympic Curling Trials. That was some amazing curling. I don’t have a specific moment in mind but I love to throw lead and sweep; there’s nothing like that feeling when you sweep a stone to the perfect spot.

What do you like most about the Aksarben Curling?
I love how much everyone gets along with each other. Teams are always joking out on the ice and willing to help new members. There’s a great sense of camaraderie.

Other interesting facts about yourself that you'd like to share?
Usually, the interesting fact I like to share is that I love curling but that doesn’t seem to fit here. =0). My other interesting fact is that I don’t have any (or very little) cartilage in my nose. Ask me when we’re on the ice and I’ll show you.
