HI Rob! Welcome back to swimming! I visited the Janesville Y back in the Spring and was told there is a group - a small group - trying to get a Masters team established. I'm sure you're familiar with the Janesville Y. There's also a small group in Milton that uses - I think, I presume - the Milton HS pool. Tom Lieder was the coach at Milton before retiring. I know he swims Masters and I just assume he's swimming at Milton HS. You should contact Tom at <liedert@mail.milton.k12.wi.us> ; I'm sorry I don't have his phone # handy, but I think he might be in the phone book.
I would start there, if I were you. I'll try to dig up that information about the JVille Y.

Stay in touch! Also, check out the Wisconsin website:
www.swim-wimasters.org Please call or e-mail if you have any more questions. The first meet this Fall is in Appleton at Lawrence University. It is Nov 20 and is a short-course meter meet (25m); always a lot of fun. We go out for dinner afterwards.
