For those colleges that wish to use the Gold Card, the corresponding representatives have to apply to CICA chair during a CICA meeting before the start of the tournaments.
  3. Master’s Cup – The scores of all tournaments and promotional activities of each individual College will be summed up. The College with the highest total Masters’ Cup points in all activities will be the winner of the Overall Champion of the 3rd Inter-College Master’s Cup Competition.
