Our story is based upon facts that may sound rather improbable upon their telling. The NSA,
(National Security Agency) has been directed by Congress to study different approaches to identifying
criminal activities and to prevent terrorist acts. One approach has been "crowd sourcing," where
randomly selected people would be tested to determine answers to questions posed in "real time." It has
been adapted for facial recognition programs and a possible use for "real time" merchandising tailored to
each individual as portrayed in the motion picture "Minority Report." Hence, the interest in locating such a
group at the Grove. Our guests have become a part of that study. But why?
The government has located 70 "fusion centers" across the country. These sites are empowered to
respond to possible disasters, natural and otherwise, without waiting for input from their Washington
agencies. Such a site with similar activity is located in Wiltshire, England, code named PORTON DOWN.
Such a center may have been proposed for the Grove. But by who or whom?
Many of the clues to be found have a direct "canonical" reference. 1 point is to be awarded to each
participant who properly identifies that connection. 1 point is to be given for receiving a stamp from the
(six) detectives to be found outside at the Grove and inside at the Farmers Market. 1 point is to be given
for each guest that has brought with them one of the mailed, e-mailed or phoned clues. 1 point is to be
given for identifying photo locations. 1 point is to be given for identifying each Canonical reference. The
participant with the highest total will win the grand prize of the Kindle.
Remember, you are a detective, and it is up to you to glean additional information regarding clues you
receive in any manner available to you. Use your imagination and think outside the box, we might be
dressing in Victorian garb but all the convinces of modern living are at your disposal.
Check back to this page from time to time as information will be updated and additional clues will be
forthcoming prior to the event.
CCOBS "Mystery" A FACE IN THE CROWD Part 2
NATIONAL SECURITY AGENCY/ "Stellar Wind"
As reported in Wired Magazine, the NSA is building the largest spy center in the country in Bluffdale, Utah.
When completed, its mission will be to sift through the billions of calls, email, Google searches, and
personal data trails like travel itineraries, book purchases and other digital "pocket litter." The
surveillance program is code named STELLAR WIND.
Located near Wiltshire, England, Porton Down is a government and military "science park." It continues
to study biological warfare and even took part in human experimentation as servicemen were duped into
volunteering for research. It also conducts CROWD SOURCING programs. The site was inspiration for
the facility shown in the BBC "Sherlock" presentation of the Baskerville story. A primary operative is
identified only as "J."
