I ahve found various solution online to do this; however, they involve me changing the Master Content Type of the "All Day Event" to a pciker box from a list.  Whne I do this I can set the "All Day Event" to a dfault value; however, this does not tie back to the time; therfore even though the "All Day Event" files is defaulted to yes, the events still displays the time of the event on the calendar.  How can default the "All Day Event" to yes so that the time fields disappear?

Hello you cannot do it out fo the box, but you can do it in 2 ways:
If you have SharePoint Server Enterprise you can use infopath to customize the form and get the behavior you need.
If you do not have the enterprise version you can use SharePoint designer to check this field after the page is loaded. You need to add a javascript that will check if the checkbox is checked and if not then check it.

See this post to learn how to find a specific field of a form http://www.experts-exchange.com/Q_24546806.html.

Note: Since selecting the checkbox causes page reload you should also have a check for postback, so users would be able to uncheck the checkbox and pick hours.
function isPostBack()
  {
   if ( !document.getElementById('clientSideIsPostBack') )
    return false;
 
  if ( document.getElementById('clientSideIsPostBack').value == 'Y' )
    return true;
   else
    return false;
  }
