That's what I did - the Marin Humane Society is 45/50 minutes each way unless there's traffic, in which case it's nearly an hour. That's really not a big deal for me, I've traveled up to an hour each way for many classes over the years, and I've actually been going to MHS for classes for 13 years with multiple dogs.
There is one flyball team that practices more like 15 minutes away, but they didn't have classes (they do a workshop a couple of times per year), so I went with MRR instead. It's a great team, we've been Regional Champions in both Regular and Multi-Breed divisions the past two years. I started taking flyball classes with them the summer of 2011, and were racing in our first tournament about 8-1/2 months later.
What team is near you?
