KEVIN RUDD VISITS CONDONG BOWLS CLUB

A late visit to the Condong Bowls Club backfired somewhat for Kevin Rudd yesterday.

Several residents were upset Cudgen and Kingscliff bowlers were invited to the photo-shoot over Condong members.

But the club manager says it was a misunderstanding with information unfortunately not being passed on.

“We were all having a beer together at the end of the day, swapping yarns its was a storm in a tea-cup.”

Mr Rudd used the visit to announce a $20-million active ageing program that will help clubs like the one at Condong host educational courses for older Australians.
