In order to display a date in this special format, you'll need to create a new field whose job is only to display the date.

To do so, add a field to the table containing your existing date field and make its type "Formula - Text". (To learn more, please see our Add a New Field help topic.)

Create a report with a custom formula column of type "Text". Use the following formula:

Case(DayOfWeek([Your Date Field's Name]), 0, "Sunday", 1, "Monday", 2, "Tuesday", 3, "Wednesday", 4, "Thursday", 5, "Friday", 6, "Saturday")

Then sort and group on the custom column.

Here is a formula that will calculate the third Friday of the current month:

NextDayOfWeek( FirstDayOfMonth(Today()) - Days(1), 5 ) + Weeks(2)

It can be broken down to the following steps:

1) find the first day of the month containing today
2) go back one day to the last day of the previous month
3) find the next Friday (the number 5 represents Friday)
