cutting off a story chunk

So there's two ways the year could end.

One is with the trials.  They will show up, do their best, have an impressive showing, and lose because of some rules weaseling.  (Which will be thoroughly foreshadowed.)

The other is that one of them, because of a rumor, nearly get kidnapped.  Or does get kidnapped and gets rescued.

Which is a happier ending than the first -- and come to think of it, sets things up nicely to transition to the next year.

The onlyl problem is figuring out how to shift the foreshadowing so that the kidnappers -- who have already appeared in the outline.  Hmmm. . .perhaps they could appear twice.
