GM Jones in MCC Weekender

Just received an email from Melbourne Chess Club boss Grant Szuveges. English grandmaster Gawain Jones will compete in the MCC Anzac Day Weekender this weekend. Key times are as follows:

round 1 - 11AM Saturday
round 2 - 3PM
round 3 - 7PM
round 4 - 11AM Sunday
round 5 - 3PM

Entries will close at 10.30AM 10.00AM. The prize giving is slated for 6.30pm and that will be quickly followed by a simul by recent Queenstown Classic winner IM David Smerdon. It'll cost $20 to play in the simul and all proceeds will contribute towards the MCC building fund. Note that Smerdon is also a participant in the weekender event.

Are you sure that entries close at 10:30 am for the weekender? Everywhere else, it says 10 am.
