Permanent Floating Riot Club
The PFRC (Permanent Floating Riot Club) is a student club at Michigan Technological University in Houghton, MI, active at least since the 1970s. The club's name comes from a Larry Niven story, "The Last Days of the Permanent Floating Riot Club."
The “Permanent Floating Riot Club” is the club's official name, but as its constitution says, "Section 1: The name of this organization is the Permanent Floating Riot Club (PFRC), but for obvious diplomatic reasons it will frequently go by the name of the Michigan Technological University Science Fiction and Fantasy Society or its initials (MTUSFAFS)."
Many members of the Permanent Floating Riot Club overlap with/go on to become members of General Technics, so the combination is often referred to as GT-PFRC.
