Ah, thanks. That looks a bit like what me and my GF did in Thailand where they had a chess club at the AFB, NKP up north near the Mekong. We did a simul, she is a fairly strong player and so we did it like this: 17 opponents, I made a move, she came behind me and made the next move on the board while I was onto the next board, we went around like that, won all our games! This was at the USO club at the then American AFB, now handed over to Thailand.
When I first did the simul thing there, we had a few onlookers but when my gf and I started doing it, wow, the place was standing room only! The manager of the USO club said, let them win a few games, we don't want to totally discourage them from participating! If they won, they got USO dollars, they could trade in for a shirt or pen or some such. Great fun!
