Deschutes Daze 2017 challenged and delighted the people who brushed aside the sub-par conditions (haze, smoke), and did their best in the excellent terrain near Bend. The group included people from Canada, Washington, Colorado, Idaho, California, New Hampshire, Virginia, Nevada, Arizona, New York, and the Netherlands plus a contingent of CROC members. There were no posted results, but members of the national orienteering team put on a competitive show that was great to watch.

Volunteers made the event happen smoothly, those who planned and operated the events, and some great people who dropped in to fill any needs. Thanks!! (You know who you are!)
