There are many pay to train type clubs that have teams coming and going within their own schedule(and probably have scheduled field time.
To stay all day during club doesn't happen unless the person is into socializing with other members or sponging up what is going on on the training field.
If the club you are going to is a core group of dedicated people(competitive!) it may be harder, just to do obedience.
I really don't see where (not)using an ecollar is going to be an issue, everyone has their own program and adjusts it according to the dogs progress. Who cares what others use in their toolbox?
Talk to the TD/club and see where you'd fit in.
