The stadium is a 5-minute walk from our tailgate. Personal coolers are allowed in the event area.

-------------------------------------------------------------------

Parking on game day

The grass portion of Lot X is a cash lot on gameday, so anyone can pay to park there on gameday. The money goes to the county, not us. If you are comfortable waiting to pay until gameday, Lot X will be the most convenient. The events and tailgate are beside each other. Enter through the Gator Bowl Blvd road. That funnels traffic into Lot X, there is nothing blocking or diverting traffic to Lot X. The cement portion of Lot X have been reserved by the Jaguars for Arrowhead South.

There is no parking inside the event space, only parking is on the other side of the fence next to our event space in Lot X. There is no free parking anywhere near the stadium.

If you are worried about parking in lot X because you are coming later, might be filled up, you can book through the site Fairgrounds ahead of time and walk over to Lot X. It is a short 5-7-minute walk. Here’s the site….https://www.jacksonvillefair.com/p/o...e-game-parking

The parking in lot X is 5-minute walk to the stadium.

---------------------------------------------------------------------

Post-Game Tailgate

This is a free to all event. We are coming back to Lot X to celebrate the win. Everyone is welcome. Whatever food and drink are left from the two previous events that Arrowhead South purchased will be free to all. First come, first serve.

A cash bar will be available. Personal coolers are allowed in this event.

The stadium is a 5-minute walk to our Lot X tailgate.

----------------------------------------------------------------

Hotels

Cheri Jones: I am the one who got the rate and to my knowledge they never closed it. Just has to be Sat, Sun, Mon as Friday the hotel is not accepting arrivals. To my knowledge they never closed our group rates. If your reservation is affected by the Sept 6th closure (only 2 people to my knowledge booked on Friday night) go online and rebook for Sat or Sun, or Sat/Sun

https://www.hyatt.com/en-US/group-booking/JAXRJ/G-KCCB

otherwise we are all good.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

How to purchase upper level from the Jags:

Here is the Jaguars provided link for direct purchase to order tickets in the upper deck to sit with Chief fans:

https://fevo.me/arrowheadsouth

-------------------------------------------------------

How to purchase the lower level seats or specific sections from the Jags:

Please email Alexa Olneya (olneya@nfl.jaguars.com) or call/text at (904) 633-4673. If they call, please have them leave a voicemail. Email and text are preferred. Alexa has been great to us. Lots of praise from everyone. Make sure you let her know you are with Arrowhead South to get to the front of the line and sit by fellow Chief fans.

--------------------------------------------------------------------

Heartfelt thanks are due to these great people and organizations. We are utilizing a bare bones expense system to keep the ticket money going to the charities.

----------------------------------------------------------------

Fun stuff:

We are going to have a donated backdrop/banner made specifically for the Jacksonville events. We will have a red carpet for people to stand on in front of the backdrop and fans can have their pictures taken by a professional to memorialize their trip to the Jacksonville game and Arrowhead South events. They will be posted online to be downloaded for free.

At the Arrowhead South Jacksonville events we are going raffle off a one of a kind customized Chiefs cooler. Hand built with all top quality wood. $5 a ticket or 5 entries for $20. Proceeds to benefit the Patrick Mahomes foundation.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Update 09/5

Current total of tickets sold:

Saturday Night VIP fundraiser....194 tickets sold.

Sunday pre-game tailgate ....... 467 tickets sold.



Thanks to all the volunteers who have contributed to make these events a success. I can already smell the deliciousness coming from the smoker. Brisket, Burnt ends, Pork Loin etc. courtesy of the KC BBQ society and Fergilious. Sharing some cold beverages with fellow Chief fans. Watching Mahomes on the field live take the next step in this golden era of Chiefs football.

And the best part.... Enjoying the festivity while raising money for charities that are doing great work for people in need. It’s going to be a great weekend!

--------------------------

For the record and keeping this in the open so everyone can have confidence that there was no shenanigans with the charity monies.....All monies from the Sat. night fundraiser and Sunday tailgate ticket sales will be split evenly between the Patrick Mahomes foundation, Nick Foles foundation and the KC BBQ society's scholarship programs for kids. The money raised by the sale of those great tickets in the 3rd row behind the bench that were donated and the raffle proceeds from the customized Chiefs cooler will not be split evenly but will be given to the Patrick Mahomes foundation exclusively. The Nick Foles charity group will be having a silent auction at the fundraising event. They are running it, setting it up etc. That money will go to the Nick Foles foundation exclusively. The KC BBQ Society may also do something at the events. If they do all the work, run it, they can keep that money raised exclusively too.


---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Arrowhead South doesn't collect nor have access to the money being raised. That is controlled legally by a 501.C charity. They will distribute the collected funds to the charities. Arrowhead South will publicly announce the number of tickets sold periodically before the weekend. We will be reviewing and inspecting the books. The results will be made public to prevent any shenanigans.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

EDIT: 09/18
We still have a couple of invoices out that may need to be paid but we are comfortable saying that we raised at least $15,000 for charity over the two day's.

Cool! Thanks for the offer. I'd bet that BBQ they offer in the tent is that "Florida BBQ", swimming in that molasses/brown sugar/honey sauce.

I could use some help with local physical matters. Need a volunteer to help with on the ground info. I've been there for weeks at a time. But, only once to the stadium when we played there.

This effort was announced on Saturday. I think we already have >500 Chief fans just in our group. I'll get an updated number today. We have employees of hotels, car rental companies offering us discounts not available to the public.

At this point it was to gauge interest in getting tickets to sit together at the game. I can then put down a deposit with the Jags. The Jags will block out the best group seats for us and we will be first in line to buy group tickets when we get a date and they are allowed to sell tickets.

What might help is to coordinate pooling of rides so that if there is limited parking space we can cut the number of spaces we would need. Maybe meet somewhere and park cars then carpool to the game.

Not sure about the BBQ buffet thing...I am guessing it will be Bono's since they are a big supporter of the Jags. Not my favorite BBQ around here...
Cool. Right now we have 264 Chief fans say they are going. 271 tailgating.

We have 307 people interested. Just a handful was interested in the BBQ buffett from the Jaguars. We will definitely be doing our own food. I have several people volunteer to help. An event planner volunteering. It's going to be a lot of fun to have that many fans in another teams parking lot having a good time,

Update on the Chiefs fans road trip to Jacksonville next year




We have put down a security deposit on the tickets with the Jaguars. We are now first in line to purchase group tickets when they go on sale. We will get the best non-season ticket holder seats the Jaguars have available.




Our current total is 300+ Chief fans wanting tickets to the game. 250+ upper level seats. There is a possibility we can get seats in that level close to the 30-50 yard line. Another 50+ lower level seats. Those seats will be in the corners or the end zones.




The Jaguars will create a website for us to purchase tickets. You can buy tickets directly from the Jaguars using their secured system. We will not be involved in the ordering or getting your individual tickets part of the process. When you use that website, all the tickets available will be in the Chief fans only sections, behind the Chiefs bench side of the field. We are still working out the details on how particular groups can sit together. You want to sit with the Arrowhead South or the Pat Mahomes fan group etc.? Sit with your friends? That will be an option. We will get those details finalized before a date is announced for the game.




We are considering the possibility of turning our tailgate into a World Food Championship qualifier event. The Jaguars are on board with the event. We have one of their event coordinators that happens to be a Chiefs fan on board with the idea. The VP from the Jaguars will give us the space for free to hold a 1- or 2-day event. We get rub and sauce sponsors to buy the meat for the BBQ competition. The competitors cook the meat for the championship. We eat the resulting BBQ for free. Lots of details to work out but does this sound good or do we just want to do our own tailgate? Hereís the world food championships website. https://worldfoodchampionships.com/
