GREG PRICE, Dowsing Circles

Mr. Price originally contacted the JREF some time ago regarding his ability to dowse circular paths that he (or others) had recently walked on. Mr. Price's application had been held at the JREF as incomplete and illegible. He has since sent the full application.

Since his original application was sent before the media presence rule was added, and he retained correspondence with us within a year after the application's submission, Mr. Price is not required to fulfill the media presence requirement.

Mr. Price submitted the following claim:

Quote:
I will walk four times clockwise in a circle. I will then mark that circle by using two brass dousing rods. I will do this walking forwards and backwards and blindfolded if you wish.

The area for this demonstration can be a parking lot or lawn or golf course, etc. I would first walk the area before and check for pipes, wires, water, etc. that could complicate the demonstration.
Today, Mr. Price was mailed the following response:

Quote:
Thank you for your continued interest and patience.
I am still unable to see how your claim constitutes a paranormal ability. Please clarify. Are you saying that, after walking a circular path a few times, you are able to walk the same circular path with dowsing rods? Surely remembering where you walked is not a paranormal ability?

Mr. Price has been unable to clarify how his ability is paranormal, and his file has been closed.
