Listen to Ryan Clements Awards at GFL
Autumn Tust Photo

"Listen to Ryan Clements" is a long running joke from way back when everyone used to make those "Listen to" shirts. We have a special award called Listen to Ryan Clements to Autumn from a funny incident at Bradenton where Ryan was on the mic asking everyone to stand up to make more room. Autumn flat out refused. So, she gets the Listen to Ryan Clements award for not listening. Nice!
