Send an experienced official as an observer/standby to supervise the table at the MS game, and operate the shot clock, if no operator can be found, and you will have solved multiple problems. The MS officials can get feedback at intermissions and will be confident that at least 1 person on the table knows what he is doing. This is also a good opportunity for evaluation for the officials and practice for table personnel, with a supervisor to help, if needed. This can also be a way for senior officials to give back to junior officials. IMHO, this is a win-win for everyone.
