I've got a special message from Polo Field to all of you in the community:
Hope everyone loves the Maze puzzle. The team have so many more amazing surprises planned for you this year.
Just wanted to let you know that after 8 incredible years at Club Penguin, I'm going to be moving on.
I've been so lucky to be a part of the Club Penguin Team, serving you guys every day. Thank you for being the most amazing, positive, and friendly community. Thanks for all the beautiful artwork, and encouraging words you've sent over all the years.
Don't forget YOU make Club Penguin the special place it is! Keep working together to make CP even better.
Until then… Waddle on!

Field Friday (sometimes referred to as Field Day) was a recurring event hosted on Fridays by Polo Field. In the event, he talked with other penguins and responded to players' questions, and sometimes even revealed upcoming features or events, including parties. He usually visited igloos on the map and posted a screenshot on his Twitter account without revealing the name of the user the igloo belonged to, causing players to search around the list of igloos on the map.
The first Field Friday was held on October 5, 2012, and they were usually held on the server Fjord. The times for Field Fridays were originally posted on the What's New Blog, but moved to Polo Field's Twitter account, which allowed him to post more in-depth about the events. Sometimes he invited friends to join him, like Ninja, Tour Guide, Robo Bird, Cool Times, Chattabox, and Megg.
The final Field Friday was supposed to be held on Friday May 1, 2015. However, due to server issues, many players were not able to log, and logged on players were disconnected. Because of this, the final Field Friday was postponed to an unknown date.
