An initial field study of the Duncan, BC hay formation (May 29)
has been done by CCCRN field research assistant Tracey Gendron.
Unfortunately, the formation has already been ruined for the
most part, with tracks and pathways cut through it everywhere
now. The additional rings subsequently reported were only marks
made by a family member using a golf cart, to make further light
of the whole event (while the primary contact who reported the
formation is quite interested and open-minded, the rest of the
family is definitely not). The first four flattened areas are
very irregular, with messy, chaotic lays. However, there is an
additional flattened layer underneath the surface layer, at
approximately an 85 degree angle to the top 'flow'. Plants in
these areas have elongated nodes, found in many crop formations
over the years, up to four times the normal length as compared
to controls outside the formation. Other unusual experiences
have also been reported on the property, but these are being
kept confidential by request. A diagram and field report have
been added to the web site and photos will be available soon.
(An interesting sidenote - Tracey is a new assistant as of just
a few weeks ago. She had wanted to attend a talk we did in
Vancouver on May 13 but wasn't able to, which focused largely on
the possibility of our own conciousness being involved in this
phenomenon, ie. peoples' sometimes very strange personal
experiences, coincidences, possible interactions and responses,
etc. As far is known, there haven't been other formations before
in this area (or on Vancouver Island at all) at least not in
recent years, and Tracey, who lives in nearby Victoria, had
offered her services to study any that may happen on the island.
Another one for the synchronicity books...).

A field study of the Mansfield, Ontario grass formation (May 30)
is being done by CCCRN field research assistant Joanna Emery.
The property owner, whose background is physical sciences,
reports they have been appearing on his property over the last
ten years or so. The area is very isolated. The plants do not
appear trampled, but rather gently laid down in 'spilling,
swirling patterns'. A similar, more circular event happened
previously in tiger lilies last summer in which the plants were
flattened in a sweeping rotational pattern (making 21 known
reports now for 2001). All other grass in surrounding areas
looks normal and untouched. Plants are healthy and undamaged but
remain flattened. Similar formations have not been seen in
surrounding hay or pasture fields, all have been within about
150 feet of the farmhouse and have appeared overnight. Other
brief semi-flattenings of plants from gusts of wind during
storms have been observed to be very transient; the plants
always come back up again fairly quickly, not staying down in
place as with these other patterns which are also well defined
in the field yet confined to small areas only. In that sense
they are similar to more 'regular' crop formations, just not as
symmetrical or geometric. A diagram has been added to the web
site and photos will be available soon.


Crop Watch is an annual research project of CCCRN, including field
investigations / ground studies of formations, aerial surveillance
and farming / media awareness initiatives, in particular during the
prime August / September 'circle season' on the Canadian prairies

The Canadian Crop Circle Research Network is a non-profit
research organization which has been investigating and
documenting the crop circle phenomenon and other possibly
related phenomena in Canada since 1995, creating a liason
between researchers, farmers, the public, the media and
scientists in trying to solve this ongoing enigma.
