Well spotted. PAt least it keeps the schedule more manageable by capping round length to 10' (or double whatever time each player starts on the clock) :)

Understandable but expected with current events.
Hopefully Non-Dandenong CC players can attend to support the club when a future date is determined.
Yes 5+0 guillotine is pretty rare these days but apparently was "bread and butter" back in "the good old days"

Without disclosing the reason for postponement: it was not Covid related. And yes, I too would like to try it out with 5 0...even though it will be quite an unusual feeling after all these years.
