The Clive Sadleir Award
Clive Sadleir joined the Ulysses club in 1987 with a membership number of 1169 and was an active member of the Melbourne Branch until his untimely death in 2000. His first bike was a 250cc Triumph and this was followed by several BMW K series. He enjoyed his riding and was always amongst the fast ones. His red leather jacket was very distinctive with the words 'Born 1921, Not Dead Yet'? emblazoned on the back.
Clive was a retired bank manager and had a number of interests and hobbies including his motorbike riding, push bikes, wind surfing and woodwork. He was a member of the Rotary Club of Berwick and amongst other activities he an his wife Joan were very involved in the reclamation of an old Quarry in Berwick, which has now become a very attractive Botanic Garden with many walking trails and floral displays.
Clive attended all our rallies in the early days, but always preferred hard accommodation: rather than camping.
In 1995 Clive fashioned a wooden map of Australia to be used as a perpetual trophy by the Melbourne Branch of the Ulysses Club and to be known as 'The Presidents Trophy'?. This was to be presented to a member whom the President thought made an outstanding contribution to the branch in the past year and who was not a committee member.
