My advice, don't sweat this.
World peace is not at risk if you two don't do well, and you won't win the Nobel Peace Prize if you do well. The whole idea of this sort of thing is to have FUN with your dog. If you get so nervous you want to puke, well, that may not be fun.
As a dog trainer, I've seen some awesome teams fail the CGC (under a hard but fair evaluator). They just had a bad day on that particular test.
Relax. Enjoy the time with your dog and learn through it, whether a success or not, how you can become a better team together.
