With any announcement of the circuit breaker breaking unlikely before Wednesday, and with the blessing of Stuart Dono and Jen Rutherford, we have decided to move the Dono XI Match back another week. This has the following benefits:
1) It combines with another big day for the club with the Panthers 2010 Burt Shield Premiership Reunion;
2) It will lead into Drownlow Night and be possibly the biggest in history; and
3) It means the match will be against North Balwyn for added spice.

Logistically, it gives sufficient time to get ready and adapt to any requirements.
We can’t wait for the day and to celebrate, as Jen said, “the life and times of the kindest and humblest and bravest person (we) have ever known.

And as for combining the day with the Panthers Reunion, in the words of James Grady “Dono is still bringing blokes together”.

    I heard with sorrow of the passing of Neil yesterday. I knew him through school. Sympathy to Stuart and the family.
