On September 1, 2018, Turlach Ur's brand-new Grade 5 band stepped to the line in Waukesha, Wisconsin. Of the band's 11 members, nine were first-timers and eight of those were between the ages of 10 and 13. After a slightly rocky few bars approaching the circle, the band settled in for a nicely-controlled performance and managed an excellent cut. Spirits were high and 2019 anticipation keen.
