New Club Jitters and Hangups

There is a new club starting in my area on Saturday, "Houston Hundesports". I would really like to go, and I think it would be a great thing to do with my 8-month-old pup, but I have a few uncertainties.

1) I'm really nervous about bringing Gabe to the meeting because I'm worried he won't measure up to the other dogs there. We're progressing in his training, but he still has his unruly moments. I'm afraid he'll get excited and we'll look really bad in front of the others. Maybe I haven't been a good enough trainer to measure up?

2) I don't know ANYTHING about Schutzhund or training for it. I don't want to embarrass myself.

Advice? Please?
