Best, cheapest way to do simple calendaring function on website

My church recently asked me if I would add a simple calendaring function to their website where choir members would be able to indicate which days they would be singing at church services and which days they would be out.

So can anyone give me their opinion on what would be the easiest and cheapest (I know there are 3rd party .net controls out there) way to add some very basic scheduling capabilities to an asp.net site? 

Basically I just need to be able to display a representation of a calendar and allow registered users to sign up/remove themselves from a day/time.  Don't need to do any complicated scheduling or conflict resolution or  meeting requests or anything like that.  I know I could manually code that up, but wanted to see if there were any better alternatives before I re-invent the wheel.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Google's on-line apps thing is free for up to 50(???) users and allows you to share callendars. You can even set it up as a sub-domain of your real domain - eg. cal.mychurch.org.

Resharper is great.  It was written for C#, but I understand  they support VB.NET now.

Sorry, that reply was meant for another topic. Now, why didn't the spellchecker find that?
