Throwback Thursday | to September 1999

For this throwback gallery we are taking you back 20 years to September of 1999.

There were plenty of things making headlines that month including the Magpies 18s winning the Tooheys Group 11 grand final against Dubbo Westside.

Also making news were the Forbes and Eugowra Shows which both attracted large crowds.

By the end of the month, people were starting to get ready for the Canola Cup.

Also on peoples minds was the referendum on November 6 to decide whether or not Australia becoming would become a republic.

As the Advocate photographers were quite busy that month we have split the gallery into two parts.

The second half of the throwback gallery will be published next week.
