Earlier today I booked a flight for my trip to Chicago for Big Shoulders and the USAS Convention in September. Since there’s a few days in between the two events I’m going to make a run to Wisconsin to hang out with friends and family. I grew up outside of Milwaukee so it’s nice to go “home” every once and a while.

So here’s what I need to figure out… where are the masters workouts in South Eastern Wisconsin? I’m going to be based around Menomonee Falls for my stay, but I’m not scared of doing a little driving. I got a link to some workouts at the Schroeder Aquatic Center that I can do everyday if I need to, but I kind of want the Wisconsin Masters Sampler if I can work it out. I think it would be fun to swim with a few different groups while I’m there. I’ll be in Wisconsin with time to swim on the 14th-16th possibly the 13th.

I contacted my old age group team (Menomonee Fall Swim Club), but they don’t have a masters group at the moment. They were cool enough to offer me some lane space if they had it available, but I don’t want to eat up lane space and distract the kids from what they’re supposed to be doing.

If you have ideas for me or are on a team that wouldn’t mind a random dude dropping in for a day either leave me a comment or shoot me an e-mail at rob@robaquatics.com – thanks!

    Theres the link… I talked to a bunch of them at Nationals. Good Luck? Also, there are several quarrys in the menominee falls area that would be good for OW swimming.
