We had a few new hams and budding CONTESTERS from a local boy scout group 
at our FD this year. One was working 20 phone, so I showed him where the 
SSTV window was and told him he was apt to get interference there. I said 
that with the power levels and antennas we were using, he wouldn't be 
able to do anything about it, so it would be best just to ignore that 
band segment for now. I don't think he had any problems.

Me? I worked 40 CW straight for 18 hours and made about 720 QSOs. Got 
sunburned and didn't have any sleep, but had fun! The FD food wasn't too 
bad this year either!  :-)
