Dear Colleagues, Students and Friends,

Please join us on March 30th -- the first Wednesday of Spring quarter -- for the inaugural UW Polar Day. The event starts at 9:15 at the UW Club on Stevens Way.

Come as early as 8:30 for coffee and pastries. The first 50 people also get a free lunch.

You'll hear exciting talks from some of our new (and a couple of old) faculty and students who work in the polar regions. There will be plenty of time for questions and discussion. The schedule is as follows below (subject to minor change -- check the <http://ice.uw.edu/> ice.uw.edu website for updates).

We look forward to seeing you there.
