Sailing the Good Ship Phi

Rodney Pimentel, #1050, sailed his boat across the Pacific Ocean this summer
in the 100th anniversary of the Trans Pacific Yacht Race (Transpac). The
Transpac from Los Angeles to Hawaii is one of the most popular and enduring
long-distance ocean races in the world, dating back to 1906. The finish was off
the Diamond Head lighthouse just east of Honolulu, following a journey of
2,225 nautical miles. The race began on July 11th and lasted 14 days.
Brother Pimentel bought his Cal 40 a year ago and worked feverishly to pre-
pare for the race. The boat was painted azure and argent, with three stripes at
the waterline. It was fitting that she was christened Azure . There were four-
teen Cal 40 s in the race, which made up the largest class of the 75 boats par-
ticipating. Azure finished in 10th place in the Cal 40 s and 36 place overall.

Good News for the Charles E. Stuart Scholarship Fund and

Creation of the Bill Eisenwinter Memorial Scholarship
Charles E. Stuart is an alumnus of the California Alpha chapter of Phi Delta Theta (Bond #151 initi-
ated September 19, 1902). Brother Stuart set up a scholarship fund to aid active members of the Berke-
ley chapter in their academic pursuits. Over the years, this fund has enabled a number of students to
meet increasingly difficult financial requirements for attending the University of California, Berkeley.

Over the last several years, the corpus of the fund has been shrinking as the fees charged by the former
trustee exceeded the amount of return we recognized on our conservative investment portfolio. Rather
than investing more aggressively at the risk of losing money, we were able to transfer the assets of the
trust to Phi Delta Theta s Educational Foundation. Doing so provides us with all the benefits enjoyed
under the previous trustee at a fraction of the cost and keeps the entire endeavor in the Phi family.

With the trust in new hands and as we continue to collect on past due loans, we have been able to grant
our first scholarship in some time. Joon Song, a very deserving active member of the fraternity, was
given $2,500 for the Fall 2005 semester. As the corpus grows through donations and investment re-
turns, we plan to continue providing scholarships to other members of the fraternity.

This also means that there is now a tax-deductible way to give to the local chapter through the Educa-
tional Foundation. Previously, donations made locally were taxable because neither the chapter nor the
housing corporation held 501 (c) 3 status for I.R.S. tax purposes. The Educational Foundation, how-
ever, enjoys all the benefits of a non-profit entity, including tax deductibility of donations.

I know many of you have donated to General Headquarters over the years and this has enabled Phi Delta
Theta to fund over $150,000 in annual scholarships to Phi Delt members across the country. You now
have the option of donating specifically to the Charles E. Stuart Scholarship Fund, which will ensure
that the money is made available to a member of the California Alpha Chapter at Berkeley.

Additionally, we are announcing the creation of the Bill Eisenwinter Memorial Scholarship Fund. You
may recall from a previous Alpha Star that Bill Eisenwinter, Cal Alpha Bond #1098, passed away in a
tragic car accident on May 23, 2003. Bill was the truest of brothers and was loved by all who knew
him. We are very proud to be able to offer an annual scholarship in his honor.

If you are interested in helping fund these scholarships, checks should be made payable to California
Alpha Association . In the memo line of the check, please indicate either Charles E. Stuart Scholar-
ship Fund or Bill Eisenwinter Memorial Scholarship . Checks should be mailed to the Educational
Foundation as follows:

Phi Delta Theta Educational Foundation
