Question re: timings for 3BLD...

The text on the UKCA schedule page says:

Total Time: For 3×3 Blindfolded you will have 10 minutes of “attempt time” in total for your 3 attempts. So if you take 4 minutes to DNF or solve successfully, you will have 6 minutes remaining for your next two solves. If you exceed the 15 minute mark whilst solving, you will be stopped, and given a DNF result for that attempt.

I presume that the allocation is 15 minutes rather than 10 as that's what is in the full schedule rather than the text at the top of the page? Mostly asking as this may make a difference to my practice schedule if I can make it to this comp. Also, would a stopwatch therefore be used instead of a stackmat due to the 10 minute limit on the stackmat timer?

It should indeed be 15 minutes, reused that text and forgot to change that first instance to 15, sorry! Yes, if you expect to go over 10 minutes then please notify the judge and a stopwatch will be used in addition to the stackmat timer.

I've just looked at the schedule, and it says there will be the first round of Skewb on Saturday, however it does not mention the Skewb finals on the schedule at all. I think someone forgot to put down the Skewb finals on the schedule.
