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.
