The Get-Together is run at different points; we just have to decide when. It was given a year number last year because then it would be easier to refer to it, and we forgot the amount of get-togethers we've held.
We haven't had one yet because well… I forgot about it. (And I'm kinda like the guy who runs it.)
If you look at the get together thread from last year, it wasn't announced until 29th July.
