As predicted, the Crop Circle Challenge has failed to re-invent itself. In a statement on their website, the group has stated:
“Due to new information we have gathered, we have now significantly changed the plans for the Crop Circle Challenge 2013. Namely, there is a significant danger that all the money invested for the organization and preparation of the Challenge as previously described on this website could be wasted without even having a field contest due to a sabotage and/or thrashing the chosen field.
We figured out this possibility from several sources, not least from one of the members of the Circlemakers (a.k.a. Team Satan). We have thought long and deep and we have no other option than to cancel the scheduled format of the Challenge 2013 or take a high risk of losing over ten thousand pounds without even having a proper contest.
So, we have to declare the old Challenge dead. Hoaxers have won hands down. The King is dead. Long live the King!
However, the energy, the force, cannot just disappear, it has to go somewhere. By burying the old Challenge another one is being born, just like that, by itself..
There are plans in place to start anew. We will begin a new cycle with an open letter and an open challenge to Circlemakers, the most prolific and popular crop circle faking and hoaxing group, to be published by the end of this week. Watch this space..
We will have to wait and see what this new challenge, aimed specifically at Circlemakers (Team Satan), will contain…
