Default First time visiting a club training day

I've been looking for a sport to get my 15wk puppy involved in to build his drive and give him an outlet for his energy and I've had a hard time. There's a local IPO club, but they are hard to get in contact with and haven't exactly been friendly. Today by a fluke I found a mondioring club and I sent them an E-mail. I got a call back shortly after and after speaking with them for a moment was invited and encouraged to go to a training tomorrow morning.
I know very little about mondioring, and my puppy just has a rough start on basic obedience. He has a decent sit/down/heads up heel, but that's about it. I really don't know what to expect for tomorrow. Any suggestions on what to expect, tips on what to do, what not to do? Happy to hear any suggestions at all!

Is that Lonestar Mondioring Club by any chance?

Mondio is not for the faint hearted or a less then excellent dog.

Thanks!
I'm just checking it out at this point, I'm trying to find something he will enjoy that will be a good workout for mind and body. He's my first working line dog and the world of protection sport is something I have no experience in, so I don't know yet if he will have the drive or interest in it.
