George Wright is a past attendee of the old MAKR. He has been a member of the Windjammers since 1996.
After seeing the Windjammers kite team at several events around the Tri-State area, he approached them and asked to join, even though he lives in the South Bend, Indiana area (easily a 3 hour trip from Metro Detroit area). He would make the trip up for practice and has been performing with the team ever since.
George has many other hobbies. One that stands out is his affection (borderline obsession) for Radio Controlled aircraft. He has lost count of the number of RC Planes, Helicopters, etc, in his collection. He has so many that he had to buy a custom trailer to carry them to his local flying field.
George helped with several modifications to the Snack Blaster that he helped present at U-MAKE 2018 and is looking forward to U-MAKE 2019.
· This will be George's second time teaching, and as a member of the Windjammers, he is an experienced performer!
