There's a map here that shows the location of the event. To use that map, drag it to center San Francisco in the panel, then use the "+" button to zoom in. Repeat dragging and zooming to get the desired area shown. You can click on the Satellite button to see an aerial view.
Note: Read the directions carefully, as no signs will be provided because of park rules.
All the action will start from the west part of Fort Winfield Scott at Building 1205. This is the location we've used in past years. The approximate coordinates are 37.802,-122.4753.
Coming from the South or East: Head to the Golden Gate Bridge. Take the last SF exit on Doyle Drive, just before the toll plaza. Turn right onto Lincoln Blvd. Continue under the overpass. Take the first left (Storey Ave). Park right there, on the right (in the parking area NW of the soccer field that is surrounded by buildings—this is Fort Scott). Be sure to purchase a parking sticker at the kiosk in that lot. Walk south about 200 m, with the soccer field on your left, to Building 1205.
Coming from Marin: After crossing the Golden Gate Bridge, exit immediately after the toll plaza onto Merchant Road. At the four-way stop with Lincoln Blvd, continue straight, onto Storey Ave. Park right there, on the right (in the parking area NW of the soccer field that is surrounded by buildings—this is Fort Scott). Be sure to purchase a parking sticker at the kiosk in that lot. Walk south about 200 m, with the soccer field on your left, to Building 1205.
No matter where you park at the Presidio you must purchase a parking sticker, even if there is no sign saying so near the place that you park. There are many kiosks with automated machines where you can purchase a sticker (with credit or debit card, possibly with coins). Rates are $1.20–$1.50 per hour or $7–$8 all day (more info here (http://www.presidio.gov/transportation/driving-and-parking)).
We are asking you to park in the lot bounded by Storey Ave, Lincoln Blvd, and Stone St. Note that this is not the lot that people have been directed to in recent years (the one between Lincoln and Ralston).
Wherever you park, please be mindful of conserving space so we can fit in everyone's cars, and consider the affect your car might have on traffic, pedestrians, etc. (Also, be aware that the park police office is nearby, so there's a good chance they will see your car.)
Note: Please do not park near the Log Cabin! Those spaces are reserved for events at the Log Cabin.
