Always great to report some happy and positive news"! 


"To be acknowledged as socially helpful at such an event within the crop formation context is significant. This wonderful Gala evening at Rockley Manor on Saturday was something my wife and I will find very hard to forget. At one point I personally needed to stand up at table to acknowledge an accolade which in truth took me completely by surprise.


 The event was put on by 'Brighter Futures' and hosted by farmer James Hussey Esq. for major fundraisers and guests in.... "


'Have the Creators latched onto CGI?

To dismiss this extraordinary contention too quickly as absurd,  without due consideration would not justly fit well with the very nature of the whole crop formation phenomenon...frankly, all in this strange arena is extraordinary! If this be the case it would represent first open contact!  Please keep an open mind.

Some spectacular crop pictures from 2018 or previous years have shown various kinds of “mechanical gear”. This is an important result that hardly anyone realized before. Who made such highly-technical crop pictures, and why? 

By Red Collie (Dr. Horace R. Drew)

“Crop circles” have been appearing sporadically since the 17th century: they were not “first seen” in the 1980’s, when supposedly “two old men left the pub late at night with rope and boards”

Season of Smiles:2 A Crop Circle Adventure


A brief personal tribute to Roy T. Dutton, from David Cayton, August 2018.

I first got to know Roy while we were both working at British Aerospace, Woodford during the mid 1990’s. We both worked in different Departments, I in the Design Engineering Laboratories, Roy initially in the Hawker Siddeley Dynamics branch of the Company. After Dynamics relocated to BAe Hatfield, Roy remained at Woodford and worked in Wind Tunnels and’ Special Projects’ Dept.....a bit hush, hush! 

While I already had some interest in ufo’s from my previous RAF Service, Roy was instrumental in getting me more seriously active in both UFO’s and the crop circle phenomena. He persuaded me to join BUFORA and the Centre for Crop Circle Studies (CCCS). His numerous Circle photos which he passed around our shared Canteen lunch table really sparked my enthusiasm and keenness to set foot inside a crop formation! This resulted in my 20 years of frequent visits to the fields of Wiltshire, with my good friend and co researcher, Robert Hulse. We are eternally grateful to Roy for setting us on our voyages’ of discovery!  It was Roy who also first introduced me to Robert and others with a shared interest!

 Roy was a true mechanical engineer ‘boffin’ and was keen to understand what the mysterious unknown energy was to create the crop plant swirled circles?  He designed and built a working model to demonstrate how the plant stems were softly laid down, sweeping incrementally around in curves, without physical damage in the process! He had liaised with an Italian professor on a possible energy source and they came up with a type of focussed gravitational microwave?

In my book, Roy was one of the original crop circle pioneers and he never gave up trying to find the correct scientific cause for the non mechanical planked formations. He had presented a number of lectures on the subject over the years, including to the Royal Aeronautical Society (Roy was a Fellow of the RAes) on his pet theory (developed over much of his life) describing how he believed intelligently controlled solid craft could navigate to enter and exit our earthly orbit on certain timed tracks!

Vivien and I got to know Roy well, along with his late wife, Marion and they are sorely missed.

We extend our sincere condolences to Roy’s son and family.

The funeral will be held at Torquay crematorium on Thursday 23 August 2018 at noon.

To who it may concern 


We are not in the business of crop circles     We are arable and beef tenant farmers .

It is not our or the estates wish to have crop circles on our land.  It is private and sadly...

Could crop circle aliens be giving backing to Brighter Futures bid?

A reminder to anyone in Wiltshire wishing to visit a crop circle over this weekend, and the coming week, that you can still visit the intriguing crop circle below the Hackpen White Horse, near Avebury, Wiltshire, UK. The circle is open from 9am till 9pm and you are asked to donate £3 to the local 'Brighter Futures' charity appeal. Check out this recent news!! Paul Jacobs with CGI and the farmers James Hussey and David White have raised more than £5000 this season for the 'Brighter Futures' radiotherapy appeal that will bring medical relief to thousands of people when the over all target is reached. Over the past few years over £20,000 has been raised for this charity from the crop circles around Hackpen Hill, Wiltshire, UK. Cat Newman, head of fundraising at Brighter Futures, thanked James and Paul for their support and stated - “It’s been quite mind-blowing. I love the idea that, if it’s aliens, we’ve got their support. The radiotherapy appeal is even bigger than international, it’s intergalactic.” Read more on this link: www.swindonadvertiser.co.uk

Hackpen Abuse

9.7.18  Important message for all Dutch CF visitors. 

"Last evening I was verbally abused and intimidated at the gate by a number of Dutch visitors led by a well known female Dutch crop circle group leader. This is the worst trouble I've had here in nearly a month. After learning from some of the group (who were well behaved) that they had not been informed regards times of opening (Question: is not that the role and duty of a group leader?) what CGI are doing and the general MO of events at Hackpen Hill by CGI, I informed them that the circles here are open from 9am until 9pm (a long day!) This is very odd as these people are closely associated with the alleged Dutch MK so-called 'Information Centre' , so not to be aware of these basic facts would seem highly improbable. However, this was met with hostility and challenge and at one point threatened to invade my personal space and referencing my wife in an intimidating way. This I will NOT tolerate. Interrupting my evening meal by a determined looking group marching towards me, the group leader angrily and rudely questioned our (CGI and farmer decision) right to impose these time restrictions. "Who decides these times?" The person in question has been bringing groups to the UK for many years and taking them into fields without permission so obviously wishes not to show respect and change. She did not wish me to tell her group, or for them to read about our CGI work, cropcircleconnector.com   or coregroupinitiative.com   for information for some reason. ...wished to keep all in the dark seemingly to control the situation, which is unrealistic and naive but at the same time claiming ignorance regards opening times etc."

"We here at CGI are trying to do something to calm social tensions in the UK, making it possible for people to happily visit without trouble and help the cancer charity. I feel people such as this female Dutch group leader need to be checked, perhaps by their own nationals as I feel we do not deserve to be treated in such an aggressive and hostile way for no good reason. This task is demanding enough as it is without this sort of nonsense. I would suggest that if this person, who drives a distinctive orange and yellow van, is not happy with how we conduct ourselves in the UK, that she concentrates her activities around her own home country and not come to this country and upset us. She is no longer welcome here and I would certainly NOT recommended her as a group leader as she is clearly NOT paying attention , someone who charges people a lot of money to visit circles with her. I intend to inform farmers to keep a look out for this woman...her behaviour would not be acceptable to any reasonable person. I will not be abused in this way. Dutch people , please tell her to behave and leave me alone if you know her. Thank you."

Save the famous Barge Inn Honeystreet

The Barge Inn appeal certainly needs some very rich donors to save the day as time is running out on this Crowdfunded appeal! More information:  HERE

Cross-referencing and Probability in Assessment.

 Indisputable emirical proof is here. This should, in theory, end the mysterious/non mysterious debate, for rationalists at least, for ever. Ask a qualified botanist about the laws of phototropism. Ask a qualified surveyor (MRICS) about TST and its role in design layout.  By identifying and then referencing recurring features in 'day one bent node CFs', those that are indisputably mysterious in origin, we can reasonably apply those  observations to other events. So, what do we know?

Reflections on 2017 Season.

Bringing crop formation events into the 21st century!

The two week Dorset event was extremely reassuring as this was farmer referred...a leap forward in PR terms. After harvest I received a farmer inquiry asking if we will be coming back next year! Incredible! This farmer cooperation was 100% and the farmer himself, a delight to work with. We were made to feel really welcome and am almost beginning to feel accepted as part of that local Dorset community now.

A Brief Reminder Before the 2018 Season Begins.

 "This is the most comprehensive, compelling and objective analysis of the Ansty 2016 event that exists on the net and should answer so many of the questions/posts I have read. It is based on facts as opposed to relying on wild exotic theory or anecdotal/ here-say 'reports'. IOWs..."He said, she said...I know the people that did it" type of nonsense etc. This report would be convincing enough in a court of law so it should satisfy most sensible queries and therefore should be taken very seriously".

Social Comment...mainly for the young and the newcomers.


"The 'crop pattern interface' will be Man's ultimate challenge over time. However, that is not to say we should delay further acquaintance with the subject right now. To come to terms with and integrate this subject into modern society will be a turning point...no question and I suspect it will be far more accepted within the next generation, our more open-minded youngsters."

Michael Green 1931–2018

The early hours of Sunday 28 January 2018 saw the passing of Michael Green, one of the founders of the Centre for Crop Circle Studies and an important figure in the world of paranormal research who worked with Andy Thomas in the 1990s. In this tribute, Andy remembers Michael and celebrates his work …

Modern crop pictures suggest a new and improved method for ion propulsion through space, using a two-stroke, “in-out”, AC homopolar device, which scientists at NASA or universities worldwide seem not to have considered before


Red Collie (Dr. Horace R. Drew)

Simply because... CGI was a much needed, first and meaningful step towards crop formation/community integration...a sort of 'give peace a chance' opportunity. It was something that was farmer friendly, non-commercial and not an outright antagonistic 'wind-up' to that community. We've had conferences, talk shows....

Three “seeing eye” crop pictures from Nettle Hill on August 16, 2014, Woodway Bridge on August 24, 2016, or Monarch’s Way on August 8, 2017, all show similar themes of “humans on Earth seeing a metaphorical serpent in the sky”, or alternatively a “serpent seeing humans here on Earth”

2017...Season of Smiles.

Paul Jacobs (CGI)

Paul Jacobs with CGI posts us this great news regarding their crop circle charity fund raising project with the farmers since 2012. - "Here is the certificate from Brighter Futures for total sum raised by CGI to end of season 2017. - £15,969 - The sum raised for BF at Dorset 'Tree of Life' event was £524 and total sum raised at the Hackpen Hill event was £2339. The total sums raised by CGI for all charities and farmer contributions over the last 5 years is now a healthy £25,323. - This formulation has clearly been a major success and in theory will continue to be so, gathering momentum in different ways in years to come.': https://www.coregroupinitiative.com/home

Sad news regarding the once famous Barge Inn which no longer has its campsite and
looks like their are now major food and staffing problems.
A good idea to give The Barge Inn a wide berth this year I am sorry to point out.
Check the latest reviews, the one yesterday by Skyjumper is absolutely horrendous!!!!

Target Wood, nr Badbury Rings, Dorset. Reported 16th June

Great News! CGI  (Core Group Initiative) with Paul Jacobs are to administer, on behalf of the farmer, the crop circle at Target Wood, near Badbury Rings, Dorset, UK. Reported on the 17th of June , 2017. The circle will be administered from 9am to 9pm. An entrance charge is asked for by the farmer of £3 which will go to the Brighter Futures and the local Community Hall Project charities with a small amount going to the farmer to compensate for the loss of his crop. This is the only crop circle that can be legally visited.  More information with the map ref (seen on top of webpage).

Response to Email from Distressed Individual.

"Today I received an email from someone who did not give their name and on the surface appeared to be a very frightened and distressed young man. I am approaching this from a viewpoint that very likely there are many more such people, especially young, vulnerable and uninformed that are trying to make sense of the phenomenon. Not only do we need to try and make sense of the world as a whole (very hard right now) but also this subject that runs parallel, that in truth no one is willing or able to address beyond a preoccupation with the obvious."

Paul Jacobs (CGI)

Watch out for Debunkers!


"If you plan on visiting crop formation country in Wiltshire this season this is important information for you especially if you are less experienced or unacquainted with the on-the-ground 'scene'. The debunkers will spot you and see you as a vulnerable easy target and attempt to manipulate you with their charms. A raised awareness is invaluable. Forewarned is forearmed".

Paul Jacobs (CGI)

Probability Anomaly’…a very strong   indicator.

 "This is the so called' Galaxy' formation of 2001 on Milk Hill. It is the most extreme example I can think of to illustrate probability. It happened overnight in bad weather and is composed of no less than 409 separate circles. How probable would it be do you think that this event is mysterious in origin? Each circle would have to take around 45 seconds to construct given the restricted time frame in mid summer. Highly probable I would say!"

Paul Jacobs (CGI)

Sensible Education...A Major Priority.

"It's a staggering fact that ongoing 'grass roots' education on this subject is almost non existent apart from Core Group Initiative (CGI) web site pages. Other information sharing has been limited to one or two local Wiltshire based formal 'talks' events which can in truth often include subject matter so exotic, complicated or specialist (often off topic)it is hard for most people to gain much benefit from".

A Disturbing Report

By The Crop Circle Connector Team

Something To Look Out For!


"As we eagerly await the first CF in barley, which now shouldn't be too long I hope, I would draw your attention once again to something I call 'Energy Leak' which falls into the realms of a probability anomaly. I identified this feature back in 2009 but strangely it still does not seem to be that well registered, even in the minds of seasoned crop-watchers, so this is just a reminder.  I would also urge all drone pilots to search and record such features when photographing new crop events as I regard this feature as very helpful and very strong indicator of mysterious activity as you will read in this article."

Paul Jacobs (CGI)

Remember...This Just Simply Cannot Be Argued With!


"It is highly likely that this 2017 season will be no different from previous in terms of the usual quarrels, confusion and misunderstandings. This is a result of deliberate disinformation campaigns and lack of sound, understandable pragmatic and objective information. In this regard I would like to draw people's attention once again, before it all kicks off big time and remind readers of the hard, stark reality of practical construction when it comes to alleged human involved crop formation construction (or any other major, precise or complex construction.) Please read carefully and please remember such when all the silly nonsense stories start to appear, usually promoted by 'wise-men' of 'great authority' (LOL) who expect us to meekly believe what they say without question and always unsubstantiated. The example here, of Ansty last year is a very good one indeed".
