The invitation sez:

Warm-up Times....On competition days, ...the warm-up pools will be available from 6:30 am until conclusion of the final event.

Some of us are flying into Newark Wednesday afternoon and are worried that we wont get a swim in if the 1500s end early.

How late will the pools be open on Wednesday?

Here is the statement from the Meet Info about warm-up times:

Warm-up Times
The competition pool will be open for warm-up on Tuesday, August 12 from noon until 8 pm. On competition days, the competition pool will be open for warm-up from 5:30 am until 6:50 am and the warm-up pools will be available from 6:30 am until conclusion of the final event. On Thursday (actually Wednesday) through Sunday, the competition pool will also be open for warm-up for 30 minutes following the last heat of the first event, the 800 Free, 400 IM, Men's 400 Free, and Women's 400 Free. The competition pool will be open for 30 minutes following the last event each day.

Based on the number of entries, I would expect the final event on Wednesday to finish at about 4:30, which means the competition pool will be open for warmup from 4:30 to 5 pm. When all entry problems are resolved, we will be able to run a time line, which will give us a better idea of how long each day will last.

Ok, so if arrive after the 30 minute warm-up period following the 1500s on Wednesday, can I buy a pool pass? If so, how much are they?

Is there lap swimming or even a Master's workout we can get in on for Monday?

Some people have asked about getting a workout in on Monday before the Long Course National Championships at Rutgers. The Rutgters Masters Club will be practicing on that day from 6:30 - 8:30 PM. All participants coming in that day are welcome to join in.
