Who is FLAT FRANCIS, you ask?

FLAT FRANCIS is a friend of FLAT STANLEY. If you don’t know about FLAT STANLEY, go to

 A little background…

FLAT STANLEY was visiting Bend, Oregon last year on one of his big adventures when he met FLAT FRANCIS at Mt. Bachelor. FLAT STANLEY was on his FLAT skis and FLAT FRANCIS was riding her FLAT snowboard. There was a collision on Marshmallow run off of the Sunrise Lift.  FLAT STANLEY was down. He fell and had a ‘yard sale’ with his FLAT skis and FLAT poles scattered across the slope. All of a sudden, FLAT FRfllat stanley imageANCIS came flying down the run on her FLAT snowboard and accidentally ran over FLAT STANLEY’S FLAT legs with her FLAT snowboard! Both were OK, but shaken up. They laughed it off and have been FLAT friends ever since…(just friends, people, nothing more…THEY’RE FLAT for goodness sakes!)

FLAT FRANCIS lives in Bend, Oregon. She likes to be outside and see new sights, just like FLAT STANLEY, but she likes to stay local. FLAT STANLEY has traveled all over the world! FLAT FRANCIS is quite adventurous and has been known to do some spectacular stunts! She knows Bend like the back of her FLAT hand. She wants to share some of her favorite places with you, but she wants YOU to be able to find where she is. (She’s always up for a fun game!)

BendOregon365 is featuring FLAT FRANCIS every week beginning May 23, 2016.

Find CLUES to where she is on and Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter accounts of BendOregon365.

 How it works…

FLAT FRANCIS will visit a different location in Bend, Oregon each week, and if you are the first person to find out exactly where she is, you will win a prize from that week’s sponsor – a restaurant, retail outlet, movie theater, tour company, Athletic Club of Bend, etc.

REQUIREMENT: You need to find the printed picture of FLAT FRANCIS in the location that you see on the website. It will be hidden in that spot, so look hard. After you find the picture, bring it in to the sponsoring business, written on the back of the picture, to claim your prize.  It’s that simple! (Of course, you need to know Bend or find someone who does).

FLAT FRANCIS will be giving out THREE (3) CLUES to her whereabouts each week, so watch for them on posts by, and BendOregon365 Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter accounts.

The CLUE Posts will begin on each Monday and run through Friday. The picture of where FLAT FRANCIS is that week will be posted on that Saturday. You have from Monday to Saturday to find her! Winners will be posted on

This contest will run for as long as FLAT FRANCIS feels up to it. She’s out and about everyday, and it takes her awhile to get around due to her size. She can get a little tattered and bent out of shape.
