Location: The NEAREST address for the meeting location is 2508 Hotel Circle Place. Please note that this is an approximate address. This address is referencing the Presidio Little League Sefton Baseball Fields which are directly east of the event meeting location. The meeting location is located at Cottonwood Grove in Mission Valley Preserve.
To get there, enter through Sefton Baseball Fields, drive down the dirt road on the right hand side of the fields and follow the road to the west end. Park along the fence at the west end of the ball fields. Please be vigilant of bicyclists that may be using the nearby bike path. Once parked, walk west along the bike path a short distance into the preserve; we’ll be set up just inside.
