Schedule for Natalie Wilkie’s races at the Paralympics

(courtesy of Brian May-thank you Brian for working out the time differences):

Hello Larch Hills Skiers,
 
Between time and day differences and the coming beginning of Daylight Savings Time (not observed in Korea), there may be some challenges figuring out when to watch Natalie.  So, in Salmon Arm time, here are her race times …
 
* Sunday, Mar 11, 8:15 pm (PDT) – Interval Start – Free (Women’s Standing)
 
* Tuesday, Mar 13,  7:07 pm (PDT) – Sprint Qualification – Classic (Women’s Standing)
* Tuesday, Mar 13,  8:31 pm (PDT) – Sprint Semi-Final – Classic (Women’s Standing)
* Tuesday, Mar 13,  9:48 pm (PDT) – Sprint Final – Classic (Women’s Standing)
 
* Friday, Mar 16, 7:45 pm (PDT) – Interval Start – Classic (Women’s Standing)
 
* Saturday, Mar 17, 6:00 pm (PDT) – Mixed Relay
 
The full schedule is available here … 
https://www.paralympic.org/pyeongchang-2018/results/info-live-results/PWG2018/en/cross-country-skiing/daily-schedule.htm
The “My Time” column seems to be accurate, but you usually need to subtract a day for Salmon Arm (e.g., 12:15 pm Mar 12 in Pyeongchang is actually 8:15 pm Mar 11 in Salmon Arm).
