UKU University Mixed Indoor Regionals - Confirmed Schedules #UXIR

After we released draft schedules through Facebook yesterday, each has been viewed at least 120 times, so we're hopeful that people would by now have spotted any major errors.

Insofar as a schedule can ever be confirmed, we can now confirm the below. In particular, we'll endeavour not to move anyone's start time earlier even if we do have to make edits due to errors, so you should now be able to trust these timings.

If teams drop out now, there is a good chance that the schedules will have byes in.
