It is with sadness that EFCC reports the passing of SIM Ken J. Bowyer on 14/10/16. Ken was a regular England player and played in two ICCF World Championship Semi finals. In his first semi final, Ken achieved the International Master title in 1992. Eleven years later, Ken achieved the Senior International Master title whilst playing on board two for England in the 5th NATT. Ken played in the Essex team for many years and helped the team win the County Championship as recently as 2014/15. EFCC would like to express its condolences to Ken's wife, Ann and the family.
