Has anyone done the short course of Mike and Rob's Most Excellent Tri? Is
it a good race for a first ocean swim (1/4 mile)? I have to choose
betwenn that one on August 13 or Bonelli Park Steamboat Tri-Al (500yd
lake swim -- too warm for a wetsuit) on August 4.  

Any opinions/recommendations would be appreciated.

I did the long course last year, however, a few in our club did the short
course and liked it. MESP events are well managed and friendly to all
levels of competitor.

At that time of morning the ocean is calm. Last year it was about 67 deg.

Good luck.

This will be my first long course. Any tips you care to pass along to a
back of the pack age grouper?

mike & rob's was my first triathlon ever!! (last year). the water was
calm, bike and run course are very flat, wonderful people all the way
around. best of all, since everyone is doing the long course there is
plenty of room in the bike area for your bike (no pushing or shoving to
get your bike in). this race got me hooked on triathlons!!! cool t-shirt,
too. my only suggestion is to book a room now (if you're from out of town)
they fill up fast. do the race, you will not regret it...
