The Council of Grey Havens proudly announces that it will host
the 2002 MECCG North American Championship August 16-18 (Fri-Sun)
in San Francisco, California.

The Event will be held in Building C of the Fort Mason Center.
A National Historic Landmark, this former military installation
is now used as convention and meeting space.  It is a cultural,
educational, and recreational center focusing on the visual and
performing arts, humanities, education, ecology, and recreation.
It is ideally situated in the northern central coast of the San
Francisco Peninsula.  Everything will be within walking distance.

Ft. Mason is located in a neighborhood known as the Marina district.
The nice thing about the Marina district is that it is not completely
touristy and is a place where some people in San Francisco actually live
and work, so people can get a sense of everyday life in S.F.

Some of the things withing walking distance of Fort Mason:
At least 20 different hotels providing a variety of price and comfort;
Views of golden Gate bridge and Alcatraz;
Tourist attractions like Fisherman's wharf and North Beach;
Any type of cuisine, a multitude of bars and cafes, grocery stores;
Public transportation including cable cars.
