In addition, I feel like Density Lab was run very poorly. We had density first block, and the event supervisor was around 5-10 mins late. It was understandable that he was in a rush to get the test started given the fact he already lost some time. He handed us the test, and didn't say anything. The test was only about 25 questions long, so my partner and I decided that it was plenty of time to do the test and didn't split up the test, being sure to not make silly mistakes. We assumed that the supervisor would call us up for lab and give us a bit of time to finish, and go back to doing our test. This is what occurs for many competitions. However, around 11 minutes later, he said that there was 30 seconds left. Understandably, everyone in the room was confused. He apologized for the confusion, but an apology doesn't really help much in this case. Therefore, we ended up finishing only around 12 questions of the 23. We took 10 minutes on the written tests. According to other teams such as grover, the supervisor told them and other blocks how much time they got before the test started. oof

It's probably too late now, appeals were supposed to be right after the event.

You probably can't because you should have filled out the appeal form given to you in the team folder if you wanted to appeal.

No you cannot. Usually once awards end that's all you can do for appeals. Also it's only a coach that can appeal not a competitor.
