There actually are a few CW traffic nets.  For info, you might contact  my 
friend Robert Griffin, K6YR, the Santa Barbara Section Manager.

Unfortunately the thing that helped me increase my CW  speed isn't available

As KN2SSX I struggled to get to 13  WPM to upgrade. I finally made it and
became K2SSX. My very generous  parents bought me a Ranger and SX-101
(spoiled brat me wanted a 75A-4). I  started handling traffic. Within two
months my speed went from 13 to 40  wpm. It was like a miracle.

Handling lots of record traffic is a great  way to increase CW speed. It's a
pity that there isn't much radiogram  traffic around anymore.
