How about something like?

    Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
        ' Find the second Monday in October of 2006...
        Dim dt As DateTime = GetSpecificDate(2, DayOfWeek.Monday, 10, 2006)
        Debug.WriteLine(dt.ToString)
    End Sub

    Private Function GetSpecificDate(ByVal occurence As Integer, ByVal dayOfWeek As DayOfWeek, ByVal month As Integer, ByVal year As Integer) As DateTime
        Dim returnDt As DateTime = Nothing

        Try
            Dim counter As Integer = 0
            Dim startDt As DateTime = New DateTime(year, month, 1, 0, 0, 0)
            If occurence >= 1 Then
                While True
                    While startDt.DayOfWeek <> dayOfWeek
                        startDt = startDt.AddDays(1)
                    End While
                    counter = counter + 1

                    If counter = occurence Then
                        If startDt.Month = month Then
                            returnDt = startDt
                        End If

                        Exit While
                    Else
                        startDt = startDt.AddDays(1)

                        If startDt.Month <> month Then
                            Exit While
                        End If
                    End If
                End While
            End If
        Catch ex As Exception
            MessageBox.Show(ex.Message, "Error Finding Date", MessageBoxButtons.OK, MessageBoxIcon.Error)
        End Try

        Return returnDt
    End Function
