Some grown up coaching

"Juniors get it to easy" is a claim often heard 'round these parts. "They get coaching and discounts and special prizes, and adults don't" is the usual follow up. And while parts of this statement may be true, there has been nothing stopping adults from organising their own 'special' chess activities, except the desire to have some one else do it for them.
Well the ACT Chess Association is organising some coaching for adults (and strong teenage players). On Sunday 22nd of August, GM David Smerdon will be running a coaching seminar at the ACT Junior Chess League Chess Centre aka Campbell High. It is open to players in the 1000-1700 rating group (teenagers and up) although players outside this range may be accepted if space permits. The activities include a simul by David against the participants, with the proceeds from the day going to help fund David's trip to the 2010 Olympiad.
