Another Deschutes County Commissioner is against allowing the Leadman event organizers to dictate a "blackout" period surrounding the September race. The issue surfaced recently after Ironman organizers said they were looking at Central Oregon for their event on the same weekend.  Commissioner Tony DeBone voiced his concerns about a "blackout". Alan Unger told 1110 KBND News he doesn't like the idea either: "Yeah, that shouldn't be a deal killer that's just groups to me trying to play politics with us to better themselves and hurt their neighbor.” Unger says the Leadman draws about 250 athletes and the Ironman, about 10 times that number at 2500.
