Where in San Fran?

With a year's warning, I think I might try for a timeshare trade to San Francisco to get to see this in person. Where in San Francisco is the Golden Gate Angling Club? Anybody have a street address so I can do a map quest search? Thanks in advance.

GGACC street address

Street names are posted in Golden Gate Park; street numbers are not. The GGACC is located on John F Kennedy Drive, San Francisco, directly across from the Buffalo paddock.

Per my GPS, the club entrance is located at 1263 John F Kennedy Drive, San Francisco.

Read on very odd comment (another board) that there may not be one. Strongly doubt that will be the case as the first (two?) were roaring success's.

20077 Spey O Rama

There will be a 2007 Spey O Rama. All of this year's participants were very positive that they wanted another event next year. Dates are not yet decided, but will probably be a bit earlier in order not to interfere with spring fishing seasons for some of the particpants.
