You can have a ftime+modulo markup expression like this for your next 3 

* {(ftime when="second Sat of Jan "(ftime %Y)-(mod (ftime %U) 
2)week+(ftime %U)week)}
* {(ftime when="fourth Sat of Jan "(ftime %Y)-(mod (ftime %U) 
2)week+(ftime %U)week)}
* {(ftime when="sixth  Sat of Jan "(ftime %Y)-(mod (ftime %U) 
2)week+(ftime %U)week)}

For better readability I've omitted fmt="%A %d %B %Y from 14:00 to 
18:00" after the first {(ftime. Note the quotes and the spaces. The 
markup expression between {( and )} should be on one line.

This should work with a recent PHP version (tested with 7.0.12).

Shortly after January 1st every year you should check if you need to 
change "second" with "first":

   when="first Sat of Jan "...

If this seems too complex, or if it doesn't work with your PHP 
installation, there are two recipes that may be of some help.

I believe the Grep recipe was written for a similar need:


You can show/hide dates, or make future dates bold.

Alternatively, the Reminder recipe does something like this:


In both cases you have to write a list of the future dates, and from 
time to time, delete the past dates.
