Don't be timid, or intimidated!
Don't be rude, but stand your ground, it's a very crowded operating event. Some take it dead serious, some, not so serious.
Use good operating practice and eek out as many contacts as you can.
A PILE UP CAN BE FUN!
You will make far more contacts by chiseling out a frequency and sticking to it, than chasing frequency after frequency.
