Well... if you like, you can pick one of the sophomore NPCs and make them the person Jack beat to make it into the finals. He could think about that, about how the tournament is far more grand in scope than his circus performances, how he is excited to represent his family, and much more. If you pick an NPC for him to have eliminated from the tournament, please do not choose Miranda as she has already been eliminated by Vincento.
You are exempt from posting about the beach party if you wish to be, as you were not here for that. But you may post about it if you like, as I always encourage my players to push themselves and test their writing ability.
