Cabinfest talent show 2004

We tried something a little different this year.  Shannon, Kerri and Kathy suggested a talent show (see original video here).  And although I was skeptical at first, the show ended up being a resounding success! 

Shannon and Dustin took over to make sure the show went off without a hitch (they both must have spent way to much time in after hourís drama activities growing up).  If not for their motivation, the gang could have just as easily sat around drinking beer (wait a minute . . . thatís what we did).  Thank you Shannon and Dustin making the talent show happen!

Thank you to everyone who made the trip down to the 2004 Cabinfest!  It was great to see you!  We hope to see those of you who were unable to make it in 2004 in 2005.

Unfortunately the audio quality is sketchy at best.  As the video progresses into the show, you will need to turn up the volume on your computer to be able to catch some of the hilarious dialogue.  Maybe next year we can incorporate a P.A. into the mix for better sound quality.

Also, some of the stories couldnít be edited into this video, more for their bad audio quality than incriminating subject matter. 

With that in mind, enjoy the show.

Because video files are so large, they will take a quite a while to download (For those of you with a dial-up connection, I would suggest that you leave the computer on while doing something else).  Once the file has downloaded, you can save it to your computer in the same way you have been saving the family photos (right click your mouse - save video as).  That way you can view the video in the future without having to wait for it to download again.
