Hallöchen!

A use case for me is that the very next incarnation of a recurring
event is cancelled.  Is this possible in org mode?

The closest possibility is

* TODO group meeting
  SCHEDULED: <2011-09-27 Di 13:30 ++1w>

and to set it to "done" when it's cancelled.  It's okay, I just
wonder whether there's an appointment-based solution instead of a
task-based.

Tschö,
Torsten.

Hi Torsten,

I just set this repeating occurrence to CANCELLED (which is a DONE state
for me) and the event is rescheduled for the next cycle.  I log state
changes so I get a record of this.

Another option is to clone the task (C-c C-x c) for each occurrence. I
do that for some meetings where I want to take notes in individual
meetings - and a single meeting can then be rescheduled to a new
time/location without affecting the main repeating task.)  You can
then cancel the appropriate cloned task occurrence.

Regards,
Bernt

Okay, I'll do something similar.  Thanks!

Tschö,
Torsten.
