In the beginning there was XOM

In March of 1998, after surfing the internet, I [Bev Gores] found myself engrossed in the Xenaverse of the Web. Realizing how important (and fun!) it is to have face to face interactions with people, I put web-feelers out to see if there was any interest in starting up a fan club for the television series Xena: Warrior Princess in the Twin Cities.

Lizzy, Jono, Robin, and Sara responded with a resounding yes, and the fan club was born.

We first met in Minneapolis on April 20th with five people. Soon a name, a mission, and a plan was developed. Things moved quickly in the first three months: membership grew from five to 22, Liz and I were accepted as co-deans, Jono as Chair of Regents, and Lisa as Treasurer, and the web site was born with Mr. Jamester at the helm. The rest is history.

And it’s true what they say: Xena: Warrior Princess fans are the nicest people you’ll ever meet. Beverly
