      3. Location Discussion: It is pretty far North, but accessible to those out East because they can take Woodmen in to town. It is right off I25, but Rush Hour makes it a pain for those coming from the South. Voted to leave it at Tilted Kilt Colorado Springs until an alternative can be found. Powers corridor maybe off Platte or Constitution to facilitate Eastern El Paso County?
