Eric "Mister" Fretz was slipped some Troop 8 koolaid by the Vulture in 2000 and has not been the same since.  Famous for sarcasm gone awry and kung-fu firefighting, he can be found needling patrol leaders and stealing desserts from inattentive first years.  His favorite trip so far was as a Venture leader for the amazing Caribbean sailing trip in 2005.  His specialities include baking with his backpacking oven, making smarty-pants interjections at inappropriate times, and crushing the resistance of recalcitrant Life Scouts with his "Eagle Speech".

Favorite Trips: and the one where James got digits from the Girl Scouts as a first year, and the one where Neale et al made me projectile vomit, and the one where Steve started anti-waterfront radio, and the one where Steven stopped a bike on a 45degree slope with his face, and the one where we split the troop into two groups to give other troops a chance and then we won 1st and 2nd place, and the trip where Frisky got shot with a salsa cannon, heck they are all awesome!, the one where Ben set the aluminum table on fire
