Hutt City Mayor Wins Virtual NPC Mayors Challenge!
He's done it!
Hutt City's Mayor John Terris has won $5000 worth of Air New Zealand travel to gift to a local children's related cause
or institution by winning the online Virtual NPC Mayors Challenge.
Mr Terris, who has led the challenge for the past four weeks, out manoeuvred his mayoral counterparts by picking the
correct outcomes of the final matches in the 2002 Air New Zealand NPC season to clinch the victory.
He now has another challenge on his hands - which local school, children's charity, club or not for profit organisation
to award this valuable prize to. Mr Terris will award the lucky recipient an Air New Zealand voucher for $5000 at 4pm on
November 11, 2002.
More than a third of New Zealand's civic leaders took up the Virtual NPC Mayors Challenge to support their local Air
New Zealand NPC team and to play hard to secure the $5000 Air New Zealand travel. Playing Virtual NPC involved picking
the results (winning team and points margin) of each match across all three divisions throughout the 2002 Air New
Zealand NPC season.
The top five finishers in the Virtual NPC Mayors Challenge are:
Place Name Region Total Points
1 John Terris Mayor of Hutt City 599
2 Jan Beange Mayor of Tauranga 576
3 Peter Tennent Mayor of New Plymouth 556
4 Tom Harrison Mayor of Marlborough 553
5 Meng Foon Mayor of Gisborne 551
Virtual NPC is a joint initiative between Air New Zealand and the New Zealand Rugby Football Union and has attracted

of Air New Zealand travel. All players who are Air New Zealand Airpoints members will have their points earned from
making correct predictions in Virtual NPC converted into Airpoints.
