One of Mr. Peabody's primary objectives as the California State Parks
Aquatic Specialist is to regain USLA recertification.
2. Mr. Peabody stated that CA State Parks has been involved in the USLA since its inception.
Mr. Peabody said that the distance of CA State swim test (1,000 yard
open water swim in 20 minutes or less) was blocking their recertification.

to accept the CA State swim test and recertify CA State. The motion passed unanimously.
