April 1997 - The Canton of Aston Tor has it's name and device registered.

Originally the group wanted to register the name "Athenor Tor", referring to a hill upon which an alchemical furnace was located...to reflect the search for knowledge. The fire on the group's device refers to this symbolism. The group's newsletter is entitled The Retort for it's double meaning...both in reference to the alchemical vessel known as a retort, and it being a witty reply.

June 1997 - The Canton of Aston Tor gets its charter for full status.
