OK, that's tricky.  So if it's every three Thursdays, you could
do something like this:

# Test: Pretend April 30 is a holiday
OMIT 30 April 2015

# The basic schedule
REM 2015-04-09 *21 SKIP MSG Lab Meeting

# The delayed-by-a-week schedule
# Only trigger if the previous one was omitted
REM 2015-04-16 *21 SATISFY [isomitted(trigdate()-7)] MSG Lab Meeting (delayed)
