Having a strange problem with my Wordpress blog and calendar plugins... any calendar plugin, actually.

So, I am building a private Wordpress group blog. I would like to put up a calendar in one of the static "pages" so that members can add events and everyone can see them.
I've tried using several different plugins for this. AJAX Event Calendar, Eventify, DH Events Calendar, and a few more I can't recall. All produce exactly the same issue: they make the entire site incredibly slow to load when active. It will take 20-25 seconds before anything appears. This behavior exists across browsers. I've tried disabling all the other plugins I run to see if there's a conflict, but that has no effect. FWIW, embedding a Google Calendar (not as a plugin) works fine, but I really would like something where the users can press a button right on the site to add events.
This blog is hosted on an external web server, not Wordpress.com.
I'm thinking perhaps there is something shared between these plugins that is causing the site to crawl, but I'm not really sure where to begin. Any tips?
