Is anyone interested in me contacting group sales and seeing if I can get something worked out on a block of tickets for the game?

BEFORE you reply please keep in mind I will need your money in advance and the tickets will be in the upper level.ALSO I will sell the tickets on a first paid basis only because my ass is not getting stuck with unpaid tickets.

I'll go in for 3 tickets if a large group of us are going so I can watch the game with the Planeteers but if its not that many I'll go for the better seats.

Depending on where they are, sure.

If they try to ship our asses up 30 rows into the upper corners, I'd tell them to get bent. I was just on the website last night looking for ST availability, and it looks like we could have an entire section to ourselves from the 2nd row back in sections 332-338.

It looks as though I have to make a $100 non-refundable deposit so if you reply please make sure you're serious,we need a minimum of 20 tickets to do this

Then in the interest of full-disclosure, I'm a "no" until I know where they are.

This is my only trip this year, so I'm going to be a bit picky.

You know where my old ST's were. I'm not THAT picky.

But if I'm only getting to attend one game this year, I'm not sitting 30 rows up in the upper level when I can very likely get better tickets when they go on sale to the public.

Now, if Nzoner calls and they say they'll give us a block of 30 in say, Section 334, Rows 2-4, then I'll send him the money ASAP.

My guess is they won't do that.

I'm looking for FOUR tickets, but kind of picky since I'm traveling to get there. This will be my first game at Arrowhead since the Turkey Day game against the Donkey (flight, hotel, rental car already booked). I think I scared the folks at club level when I was there. A 750 ml bottle of 151 kind of puts you in a different state of mind!

Let me know location/prices. At minimum it will have to be close to the 50 if in Upper Deck, otherwise I'll just pick up tickets in the lower bowl.

There is no bad seat in Arrowhead though. I have been from row 7 on the 40 yard line to row 40 in the upper deck on the end line. Personally, I prefer the upper deck view as you can see the play break down much better.

OK, guess we'll be looking for more centered seats. I agree that upper deck can be cool (watched a 53 yard field goal beat the donkeys and had a great time), but I only make it out once every 3-4 years. Want GREAT seats.

The last game before the Turkey Day game I went to was the Monday night game Mrs. Sharpe ran her mouth and DT got ejected. I was so angry I had to leave my seats for the entire 4th quarter. Our tickets were just in front of Deron Cherry (got autographs) which was really cool since he was a hero of mine. Too bad the game sucked so freaking bad. Was about 15 rows up on the 45. Would love seats like that again.

I've sat practically everywhere in that stadium and it doesn't get any better than the upper endzone,it's like watching the game through the quarterback's eyes.

As for this game I'm just going to see how the conversation goes but if we get offered upper endzone I think we jump on it.

FYI.... with group ticket purchases, you don't have to get tickets all in the same section. So if some wanted lower level tickets, and some wanted upper level, you can easily request that and have 2 groups. As long as you get more than 20 tickets, it really doesn't matter where they are. Seat availability withstanding.

I've done a group ticket purchase every year for the last 5 years. I do a big get together for my family and close friends each year for a game. Had a group of 42 people last year. I'll be doing it again this year, so it may be possible to bundle my group ticket purchase in with the CP one if we have to fulfill the 2 different game group ticket deal.

I work with Katie Jackson on group ticket stuff, and she knows me well from years past. I imagine that if we explain all this to her, she'd be understanding and work with us on the 2 game deal. She's been very accommodating in the past. I'd be happy to talk to her and use whatever good will I've earned to help out. I imagine that if I can ensure her that I'm doing my group again this year, and will be part of this group too, we should be cherry.

Let me know what I can do to help. I'm obviously down for at least 1.

Usually the best way to contact them is by e-mail. I'm not sure who you've been working with, but Katie is the lady that gets shit done. Here's her contact info. She even gave me her cell. I know she won't mind....

They normally read off the group name and flash it up on the jumbotron at some point during the game. Be sure and tell her Chiefsplanet for the group name, and we'll probably be on the jumbotron at some point.

This organization has gone from a season ticket waiting list, to a base of around 35k in 7 years.

We haven't had a game like it used to be, literally every seat full, since Thankgiving 2006.
