Upon joining, members get their MSD, which is the date of their keg purchase as it is recorded in the official .
After the MSD is the coterie or clan into which each member is associated. It's a group of five to ten members who joined at approximately the same time. The names of each coterie are derived from naval traditions, periodic table elements and a quip to frequent flier or credit card member statuses. See if you can figure it out.

Honorary Member Since (date).
Date of permanent sobriety. (The date the member died).
