The Escalade Subsidiaries also have websites (the “Subsidiary Websites”) that provide information regarding their products and services (the “Products and Services”). The Subsidiary Websites serve as a resource for the purchase and sale of Products and Services, and further seek to create a community of like-minded people interested in the Products and Services offered by the Escalade Subsidiaries.
