The command Center and the CHIEFS WINnebago will be located at F24 by the crosswalk.

No charge for food as long as we have enough to go around. We can assure this by asking people to bring stuff and enough to share.
Bring your own beverage, or I believe Monty will have beer on tap.

Gates to the lot typically open at 8:30am.

Not sure about saving spaces to park around us. If there's space you're welcome to. If not, then you know where to find us.

I would also ask you to keep in mind that there will be several non-CP people there as well, so I think it would make them more comfortable if we went by something other than user names. Monty is, well, Monty, and I am LeAnn.


I know we have been discussing things in another thread, but I thought I could start one in case we need to update the OP for any reason. Monty, please let me know if I need to change any information.

Bring whatever you want. If you bring burgers or brats, you might bring buns to go with them. You you bring dip, bring chips to go with it. That sort of thing.

No, I won't be selling beer from the tap. That is illegal.....therefore...

FREE BEER!!!!

Of course, if you want to bring your own, that would be fine too. :D

The group I've been tailgating with lately hasn't been showing up until 10 or 10:30, and I don't think that's changing this week, so to take full advantage of the home playoff game (can't take these things for granted), I'm going to try showing up around 9 to hangout with the CP gang, then might wander around later.

I'll bring chips or some sort of snack to share, and maybe some beer.

What beer is on tap?

I'm a bit of a n00b when it comes to these gatherings, so forgive me if this is a stupid question, but...

If there are gonna be a shit ton of people there (and it sounds like there might be), would it be completely lame and cheesy to have name tags for people? It might be nice to not have to constantly try and remember faces, usernames, and real names for people for those of us who haven't been around much before.

Probably won't have to worry about remembering faces.

I'm not really a big fan of the name tags. I dunno. Just too many none CP people to really consider just a CP tailgate, and I'd feel weird walking around a tailgate wearing a name tag.

Anyone know how they direct parking in Lot N? (Cash lot)

I usually park in the picnic area parking caddy-corner to Lots G/H.

But if the tailgate is moving down to F24, I'd prefer to park in the cash lot on the other side of the crosswalk. Our seats are on that side of the stadium anyway.

Just wondering what gate I should enter, and if the parking nazis force you into a specific area, or if I'll be able to park where I like.

We come in Gate 5 and go left. They aren't going to stop you if you pull up over the median and park along the road. Even if you do go to wear the lot entrance is, I don't think they'll stop you fro going to one of the spots along the road. What time are you getting there?

I'd like to be there when the gates open.

I'm used to getting there around 8:15 and being one of the first 25 or so cars in line for picnic parking off of Stadium Drive/Lot 6.

Just a note, I meant to say they aren't going to stop you if you pull over the curb.

Anyway, I forgot that you will come in from the north. Probably easier for you to come in gate 6 and go all the way down to that last lot N entrance. I'm not sure if they do the cone thing to guide cars over there or not. If not, just ignore any parking people and drive along the edge of the lot until you see us across the way.

I'm not sure I can tell you what it is compared to what you're used to. We typically get there at about 7:15, and we average being about 5th in line.

We came in from the west for the Titans game. Got off I-70 at Manchester Trafficway and went in Gate 6, IIRC. Got in pretty quickly considering that it was about 10am when we arrived at the stadium. I think the bitter cold weather was the reason for that. But they did have cones and guided us in Lot N. Will be parking there once again.

We came in from the west for the Titans game. Got off I-70 at Manchester Trafficway and went in Gate 6, IIRC. Got in pretty quickly considering that it was about 10am when we arrived at the stadium. I think the bitter cold weather was the reason for that. But they did have cones and guided us in Lot N. Will be parking there once again.

So they basically told you where to park once in the lot, or were you free to take any available spot?

Fuck.

Guess I'll talk to Tiny and see what he wants to do.

The early bird gets the good spot?

Wish I could help you.

What we do is come in Gate 5, go left, drive up over the median, have someone get out to move a cone, drive far enough onto the lot to turn around and drive back onto the median facing the road (makes for easy exit). To do that on the Lot F side, you have to be there early.

Actually, you might talk to guru. I believe him and dedicatedfan (who parks next to us) come in Gate 6, and I think they get there much closer to 8:30 than we do. They might be able to tell you more about entering from that side.

If you're going north on 435 from Springfield, you'll take the Stadium Drive exit. To get to Gate 6, I believe you take that up to the stop sign and turn right. To get to Gate 5, you take the exit off of the exit that goes to Raytown Road. That takes you right to Gate 5.

Ah, gotcha. We usually go in the actual gate entrance, not that grass entrance just up the road. And you go the OTHER way - we get off at 23rd, take right then immediate left, then follow Raytown road to Stadium and take a left. (They have had that section of Stadium closed all fall, so we take a left and go through the industrial complex just to the north of Stadium. Adds all of two minutes to the drive.)

Arrowhead Construction Update
Continued construction has closed Stadium Drive

As a result, Gate 5, already one of the busiest entries to complex, has increased volume

Chiefs and the Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) have some new parking instructions, which may vary from what is printed on parking pass

Primarily impacts those entering the stadium from East/Northbound I-435 (inbound from Johnson County, KS)

Coming to KC sunday to see my ill grandmother..however i was curious if anyone tailgates the entire time and watches the game tailgating as i cant afford tickets but would love to watch the game with chiefs fans in the parking lot. Will chip in on beer and food tho

That was my plan till a ticket found me.

No, usually a red pass, though. As for putting something together, if I don't have the energy to walk all the way over to F24, there's just about no chance I'm going to expend the effort to "put something together".

Tell you what, though. If we get really, really, really bored, my group will make the trek. We won't, but if we do, we will.

Great! We look forward to not seeing you.

And yes, it'll be snowy to Wichita, but the worst of it's supposed to be up around Hays. I'm OK with driving 30mph for 4-5 hours if I have to. I'm not OK with driving 30mph for 15-20 hours. Plus, we'll get to see some family in Wichita for a bit.

01-07-2011, 03:10 PM
By the way, in case anyone wonders why driving ain't a good idea:

* TIMING: A PERIOD OF LIGHT FREEZING DRIZZLE CHANGING TO LIGHT
SNOW IS POSSIBLE EARLY SUNDAY MORNING THROUGH SUNDAY AFTERNOON.
BY SUNDAY EVENING, IT IS LIKELY SNOW RATES WILL SIGNIFICANTLY
INCREASE WITH INTENSE SNOW ACCUMULATIONS OF 4-8 INCHES
OVERNIGHT. LOCALLY HIGHER AMOUNTS IN EXCESS OF 8 INCHES COULD BE
POSSIBLE ESPECIALLY NEAR THE INTERSTATE 70 CORRIDOR FROM
MIDNIGHT SUNDAY, THROUGH EARLY AFTERNOON MONDAY.

* MAIN IMPACT: HEAVY SNOW ACCUMULATIONS AND BLOWING AND DRIFTING
SNOW COULD MAKE TRAVEL DIFFICULT OR IMPOSSIBLE.

* OTHER IMPACTS: LIGHT FREEZING DRIZZLE SUNDAY MORNING IN ADVANCE
OF THE SNOWFALL EVENT MAY HAVE THE POTENTIAL TO CREATE SLICK
SURFACES.

What's your budget? Don't know what you paid before, but there are some on TicketExchange for ~$50/ea (plus fees, probably more like $60-65 each), which is about $35/ea cheaper than earlier this week.

I need to keep it pretty limited. I've got pretty much $100 tops to drive up there (which Clay said he'd cover if I drove him), drive back, park, and get in. I really shouldn't be doing this at all, but I chalk it up to a healthy crack like addiction.

I think he was taking a shot at me. My Gold Lot comment was kind of a shot at him to start with when he questioned why we were so far out.

No! Was more just whining that I'm never going to get my crew over to the ChiefsPlanet tailgate. Mixed with smart-assery I can see how it sounded.

I've got a long-time tailgate group of buddies. Many years ago I told them we should start aiming for "B5" cause that was where ChiefsPlanet went. I would periodically meet planeteers over there. I think that tailgate kinda dispersed over time, but mine stayed.

I actually am serious when I say this: If we end up anywhere near F24, I want to stop by. My brother is in town and he's a CPer as well, so for once I won't be the only one wanting to meet some of the online people. Thing is, I'm usually also organizing and cooking, so getting away isn't always so easy without kind of snubbing my buddies who come in from out of town.

Now, the question as to why I didn't just say that? I'm and idiot. (And I was drunk.)
