When you first start creating an event on the iPad, the flashing cursor is missing. You can get it back by tapping on the text box.

Hi, Thanks for the report. The cursor does a few weird things at times. I have managed to hide most of the quirks. Unfortunately these are bugs with Apple components, which means I cannot directly fix them, just try to find more and more elaborate ways to work around them. What version of iOS are you running? I gather that although the cursor is not visible, the keyboard has appeared and if you start typing the text goes to the right spot and the cursor then appears correctly?

This was on iOS 11.1.1. Yeah, you can start typing, but it's not 100% clear exactly what box you're going to be typing into. Certainly not a high priority issue!
