Fast Facts:
*Held at the Frank Brown Park, the event featured live music throughout the weekend with Mastermind, Element 55, and Ill Break doing their thing.
*The double-points IASCA stereo competition, spon-sored by Sommer Sound Car Audio and the DynoJet Mobile Dyno, attracted both the stereo and horse-power guys.
*The afterparty at Club La Vela, the largest nightclub in the USA, meant partying with thousands in the 11 diff-erent theme rooms, 48 bar stations, and seven dance floors, all the while enjoying exciting pool-side con-tests. Admission was half price with your Spring Fling armband.

Sunday afternoon is the traditional auction where Vital Signs club members raise money for area charities.
Sponsors: The club members of Vital Signs would like to thank supportive sponsors like Comcast, Sommer Sound Systems, Panama City Scion, and Toyota, as well as the dozens of others who helped to make the event the highlight of the spring season.
