Current club officials:

Unfortunately it's sometimes necessary to cancel, postpone or reschedule an event due to logistical issues or extreme weather, and sometimes at very short notice.

The process is described above.

The decision should be taken by a combination of the event organiser and the controller or event series coordinator.
