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.

Does anyone know the dates for the 2007 Spey-O-Rama?
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.:D

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.
