I hope you can weather the storm without too much personal hurt. As much 
time and effort as you have put into the event and the pride we are have 
for such events, this is not a critical event in the grand scheme of 
things, but I am sure some people will lash out as if it is/was.  Ignore 
them if you can.

I was a bit surprised that it was not a "postponed until further 
notice", but postponed versus canceled is probably equivalent in the 
short term (people need to deal with plane tickets, unbook hotels, etc. 
in the same way)
