::Dr. Batorious, the deep-voiced bat from Indy’s “Times of their Lives”, sits down at the announcer’s booth::
Dr. Batorious: Welcome, one and all, to the fourth annual Golden Acorn Awards!
::The orchestra strikes up and a bunch of dancers come out on stage, dressed like the various Rangers. They do a stylish routine, singing a song called, “The Rangers Are Here To-night!” At the end of it, a drum roll ensues::
Dr. Batorious: And now, your master of ceremonies, Indy Rangerphile!
::The fedora and jacket-clad chipmunk comes out to the applause of all gathered. Cameras sweep the audience, showing famous Rangers and Rangerphiles alike. Then Indy is at the podium::
Indy: Welcome everyone, to the 2005 Golden Acorn Awards! My name’s Indy and we’re here to have some fun!
::Staged fireworks goes off and the crowd oohs and aahs::
Indy: It’s great to see all of you back here…well, not HERE
because this is our first show on the road. We’re here in lovely…and hot…
Indy: Now, before we get down to business there’s a couple of people who need some special recognition. First, Jareth kindly volunteered to produce our award plaques this year. Jareth, thanks for your time and effort!
::The audience applauds, then gasps in appreciation as the jumbotron shows off the latest plaque::
Indy: Isn’t that something, folks?
::Jareth waves as the others clap for him::
Indy: Now, one person’s efforts weren’t nominated at his request, but we’d be remiss if we didn’t recognize the wonderful Acorn Café Group Picture done by Jon Lemerond. It’s not only a great picture, but a great testimony to this fine community of people. Jon wasn’t able to be here tonight, but I know he’ll be watching back home. Let’s give him a hand!
::The audience stands and applauds as Jon’s group picture is shown on the Jumbotron::
Indy: And now, down to business. We’ve got a lot of awards to give away!
Dr. Batorious: Stay tuned. Next, we have the awards in the website categories. The Golden Acorn Awards will be right back…
