Well just make sure to keep calm, be fair, and keep the players safe.

Keep the local area in the back of your head so you can give directions if necessary, (food places are also useful)

Don't stress so much about the cheating part. It might happen. If it does with players playing for the first time, take the player aside and ask them nicely not to do it. Explain how much more experienced players hate it. Don't embarrass them.

The most import part is that the groups have fun. Split the teams up so they stay fair. Make sure masks stay on. Make sure people don't get overshot.

For rec play it really shouldn't be a problem, but...

Basic pointers- take a step or 2 back from where you think you should stand to a watch player. The closer you are to one player, the less you can see of the others.

Make sure to have zones set up if you have other refs, this will make it easier to watch more players.

Thats the biggest problem you will see, mask's up after a game, and barrel plug's off in the pit's. Try to be nice but firm, you have to make sure their mask is down at all time's, and sometimes they just dont want to hear it and need to be yelled at a little bit. My fav is " Sir i dont want to have to sit you "

for your safety wear a towel or something over your crouch to protect you from those stray balls (or not so stray with some players)

try not to "bird dog" a player and if a player flinches really hard and then goes behind a bunker for lonker than normal he may be trying to wipe a hit...
