PCC’s Top Secret Mission

In a project that rivals in confidentiality only with that of the Manhattan Project, the Paternoville Coordination Committee has decided to undertake a mission of putting together the history of Paternoville. The intent of this project seems to go beyond the advent of the modern-day Paternoville which was founded in 2005. They would like to hear stories from its unnamed predecessor. The PCC website had this to say:

The PCC asks for your assistance in compiling information on how Paternoville has grown from the first few camp outs way back in the day (the unofficial beginnings of camping are contested, and could be as early as the 1970s) to the current form. An initial list of over 100 sources has been compiled and the first round phone calls and e-mails should be going out within the next 24 hours.

I contacted Chris Grassi, webmaster of the PCC, and he said that he was keeping this project “pretty close to the chest.” He sent out the first contacts on Sunday and, as of Thursday, he had received about 20 responses. He also said that he would continue to do this until he felt he had the quantity and quality of information needed for presentation.

But why all the secrecy? Are there things that us normal citizens just aren’t prepared for? Not really. Chris said he just doesn’t know how he’s going to present all the information yet. The kinds of responses he garners are going to be his steering wheel when deciding how to show the Penn State public what he found out on this fact-finding mission.

I totally see where Chris is coming from for wanting this to stay on the down-low. No one wants their brainchild divulged before knowing what that brainchild is. I’d like to thank him for the information that he was able to give me.

So remember, when you bring your tent and sleeping bag to Gate A in the fall, you are helping with one of the most classified missions in Paternoville’s history (or at least it’s cool to think of it that way).
