Rules when visiting CropcirclesWe would like to take this opportunity to highlight the 'rules' that are associated with entering a crop circle formation. This to avoid potential irritation from the owners of the fields.
- First we need to respect the crop and the land before setting foot on the field.
- Avoid any damage to the crop and the land.
- Please leave no waste, cigarette butts or other things behind.
- Walk when possible in tractor tracks and inside the formation. Do not make new tracks.
- Keep the formation intact. More people will want to see it as such.
- Sometimes a farmer places an offertory box for a voluntary contribution. Please consider a donation.
1st Formation 2010
The First Dutch crop circle of 2010 arose on the night from Friday to Saturday, June 25/26 (approx. 01.00 am). Discovered and sensed in advance by Robbert. The formation lay at the Lamsweg in Etten-Leur. This is a dead-end side street of the Zevenbergseweg. Robbert already had the idea that something would show up in this field someday, and now it had happened. The formation has 11 rings and 11 circles. The total length is approx. 230 ft (see diagram drawing).
Within all the ring’s and circles the crop (winter-wheat) lay anticlockwise. They ranged from about 3 to 20 ft in diameter. They were also partly perfectly round, partly oval-shaped. The special feature of this formation was that it lay exactly between 2 tractor tracks. You can clearly see this in the pictures.
The owner of this field has promised to cooperate regarding a research into the seeds of the grain.
This formation was also open to the public. We have heard that the farmer earned a total of 400 Euros with this. That is many times more than the wheat itself could have mustered.
