Default Transferring from 22oz bottles -> 12oz bottles?

I was planning to enter some bottle-conditioned beer into a BJCP competition this week. However, I found to my dismay that I only have 22oz bottles left of that brew, and I think I need 12oz bottles to enter. Any ideas on how I can transfer to 12oz bottles without losing the carbonation?

Hmmm, never tried that.... I always make sure that my last bottle (that gets drunk) is a 12oz for that reason.

Well I do have one 12oz bottle but it's basically the dregs from a secondary that had 4# of strawberries in it. So, lots of strawberry bits in that bottle. Also, I need to enter 2 bottles.

I'm afraid there really is no way to do this and maintain carbonation.
