Section 1 - Registrant's Business and Operations

Item 1.01  Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement

     In order to centralize its key executives into one location, Escalade,
Incorporated (the "Company") has relocated its corporate headquarters to
Evansville, Indian - the headquarters of its largest subsidiary: Escalade

     On July 24, 2006, the Company entered into a Relocation and Retention
Agreement with Terry D. Frandsen, the Company's Chief Financial Officer (the
"Executive"), to facilitate the Company's desire that the Executive relocate his
personal residence to Evansville, Indiana. The principal material terms of the
Agreement provide that the Company will purchase the Executive's home at its
recently appraised price and will pay the Executive cash bonuses in the
aggregate amount of $70,000, which bonuses are designed to minimize the
likelihood that the Executive would suffer personal financial loss as a result
of the move. The Agreement provides that the Company's total net out-of-pocket
expenses in connection with the Executive's relocation will not exceed $120,000.
If the Executive's employment with the Company would be terminated by the
Company without just cause or by the Executive without good reason, then the
Executive must reimburse the Company for all or part of such relocation payments
if such termination would occur prior to the third anniversary of the Agreement
in accordance with the schedule set forth in the Agreement.
