EUGOWRA RACES. BOXING DAY MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 2 January 1912

BOXING DAY MEETING. (By Our Special) The annual Boxing Day meeting of the Eugowra Jockey Club was held last Tuesday in glorious weather. It was a particularly mild and inviting day for the time of the year, and tempted people to come from near and far. The attendance was at least 700 to 800—possibly more—and we understand broke the previous record. The meeting was a thorough success in every respect, the sport being of interest all through, while the smooth way in which everything went off showed that the officials were thoroughly well up in their duties. "The proof of the pudding Is in the eating of it," and the management of the club had all the endorsement they could want in that respect, by the uniformly businesslike &nd orderly manner in which the whole programme was put through. The fields were up to the average, while in the bulk of cases the racing was close and interesting, so much so that punters had the satisfaction generally of" a good close run for their money. ...

GOONIGAL. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 2 January 1912

(From Our Own Correspondent). As you want district correspondence to The Forbes Advocate,' I could send a little account of the many incidents that take place amongst our Goonigal residents. It is a rising centre at present, and will most likely be brought very much to the front by proposed railway lilies. We had 35 points of rain 011 Christmas Day, making a total of 22 inches for the year to date. The harvest is drawing to a close about here, with an average of 4 to 5 bags per acre. Certainly our famous local liars appear to have been blessed with a 10 bag yield. A good many of our Goonigal friends are going to Grenfell for New Year's Day, to attend the annual sports there. A wedding will take place in our midst very early in the new year. Will send all details when the event takes place.
