Roderick Walker & Aaron Mercadel
Story By Roderick Walker
My original partner cancelled at the last second, but suggested I meet and play with Aaron. I drove from Texas to New Orleans, met Aaron and together we drove to Atlanta.In the tournament, our strengths peaked, we caught good cards, and we were lucky...all which combined to help us win the East Coast Bid Whist Championship.
I have played in several significant card tournaments
I am blessed to have made great friends in my travels in the military such that I can celebrate with my Bid Whist friends in New Orleans, Louisville, Charleston, Tampa, and DC.
My partner, Aaron Mercadel of New Orleans, has participated in many bowling tournaments and, in fact, is in the National Bowling Association Hall of Fame in St. Louis MO.
This was Aaron's first bid whist tournament. He hopes to soon start a club in New Orleans. I will travel there to be part of that club until I can form one in Beaumont Texas.
