Six months ago today we headed off to the Mining Club lunch with our pull up banners, merchandise and a couple of cheesy grins.
Rewind a couple of months and Kuuwa was just an idea on a piece of paper.
We lined up all our ducks. Logo designed. Adverts in the Business News and The West all set up. Social media channels populated. Website maps drawn up. And the all-important trucker caps ordered. But we needed a launch date to focus on.
So the Mining Club email came through and we pinned the date on the board – 28th March 2019 was to be our launch. We quickly emailed Casandra and set up sponsoring the event – hence the banners. Don’t just turn up with banners, Cassandra will not be happy. Take it from us.
Russell’s Kuuwa video played on the big screen and we were off.
And we haven’t really stopped since.
Site visits all round the state. The sheer magnitude of these mines gets us every time, even now.
We’ve been to countless Mining Club events, a few Business News breakfasts and their 40 under 40 Awards Gala as well as a couple of important charity balls – including the Pirate Ship Foundation.
We headed to Sydney for Supply Nation Connect and we followed them to Karratha for an indigenous industry trade show. To top it off, we managed to keep our liver intact on a quick trip to Diggers and Dealers.
If you are still reading, we’ll share this with you. Let’s talk about how giddy we got when we sent a couple of vehicles to the Mitchel Freeway expansion project. Yes, we went up and down the freeway looking for our water truck like a couple of kids at Christmas.
But it hasn’t all been fun and games, we have had a couple of hick ups along the way but they have taught us what is important and has made us a little tougher – bit like our trusty old LVs. Shameless plug – sorry.
Thanks to everyone who has supported us this far, let’s see what the next 6 months have in store.
