The Planica Hunting and Fishing Club was incorporated in May
1976. Since that time the roster has increased from ten to eighty
members. The club's main objective is to provide recreational
facilities for its members and their families.
Planica owns 400+ hectares of picturesque, rolling property
in Mayo Township east of Bancroft. There is year round access
via Highway 28. The members built the clubhouse, known as Koca
Alojzij, in 1976. The two modem buildings house 47 individual
rooms, each with its own bath, kitchenette, and balcony. In
the basement of Dom I there is a fully equipped kitchen, public
washrooms, and a large hall. The hall in Dom II is mainly for
indoor recreation and for the annual Fun-Education Camp. Many
hunting trophies decorate the walls. The hill above the "Dom"
offers a panoramic view of the surrounding countryside. Criss-crossing
the property is a network of roads and trails used for snowmobiling,
four-wheeling, hiking and cross-country skiing. The grounds
have a regulation trap range and a fishpond. Club activities
include; forest management, reforestation, game habitat improvement
and, of course, hunting and fishing.
Planica is a private club but visitors are always welcome.
An annual picnic attracts over two hundred people from all parts
of Ontario. Other activities, such as dances and banquets, are
also well attended. Interclub trapshooting competitions are
