ASRA's secretary and all-around champion dude Colin "Bugs" Beck is currently in hospital after having open-heart surgery yesterday afternoon. He had to replace a faulty aortic valve.
Bugs does a lot of behind-the-scenes work at ASRA, maintaining the rankings and designing all the race formats and whiz-bang excel spreadsheets. He also sets some mean slalom courses and drinks his coffee one way - black!
If you are a friend of Colin's please consider a visit over the coming days, I'm sure he would appreciate it. Or if you would like to send a postcard or motivational pictures of yourself skating, the address is below:
Level 10, Coronary Care Unit
St Vincent's Hospital
390 Victoria Street
Darlinghurst NSW 2010
Here's a video explaining the problem:
And for those of you with a strong stomach, here is a video of how they open up the chest:
Geez, ya don't come on the site for a few hours and Bugs proves us ALL wrong - He does have a heart!!!!
Get well soon mate and don't forget you can never push that button on the pethadein drip too often

Heal up Bugs.
