Ken Groce

Post by Kevin Thurlow » Fri Jul 28, 2023 11:49 am

I have been informed that Ken died recently at the age of 83. He was the first regular controller of the "Spectrum" events, and ran tournaments elsewhere. (Sorry, that is all I have at present.)

Ken lived in and played for Loughton. He represented Essex usually for the U1600 team.
In the 1990s, he played for the now defunct Powdermill team
In his younger days he was grader and an arbiter.
