  1. I am a neighbor who lives very close to the wintercount in Maricopa. I've been here for almost a decade and have listened to the drums while you are here. While I love to listen to the drums at night, and respect your right to enjoy it here in beautiful Maricopa, some of your people are very imposing to us. Please tell the people who walk down century road towards the mountain, to stop stopping in front of peoples houses, or stop doing your "workshops" on other peoples property.

    Some of us work the night shift, and the people who are gawking, or stopping along century cause all of the dogs to bark. I for one have insomnia, and my doctor has prescribed medication to help me sleep. Its not working when there is a group of people standing in front of my house for over 1/2 an hour or more.

    That sets off alarms to our dogs which in turn alarms the residents especially when your people are carrying sticks, wearing very obscure outfits, or hats. We all carry guns out here, and in this immediate area, and along century road there have been break ins, burglaries, and damage to our property from criminals. Thus the reason for having a lot of dogs and guns.

    The loud colors of some of the outfits and hats do scare or alarm and distress some of our dogs. Especially when there is a group of people it appears very threatening. One year there were a group of people pretending to be blind hanging out for a long time in front of the houses, as well as walking up on others properties. The people's dogs were going nuts.

    Please if you are going to walk down century don't stop and hang in front of houses where you obviously hear the residents dogs barking. Its rude and imposing.

    If you need to hang out please do it at the end of the road where there are no homes.

    Please also have respect for us as residents here.
