Tom Byrne is no longer at the Service cabin in Dawson. Tom Byrne is no quitter. When Klondike National Historic Sites posted the tender for the Robert Service Cabin concessionaire's position at the end of last season, it contained changes that Byrne decided he couldn't live with, so he didn't put in a bid. He says he doesn't regret the decision. He's renting space in Chris Sorg's properties on Front Street, in a row of imitation gold rush storefronts that also features a video store, summer shop, ice cream shop and restaurant.
Charlie Davis, a new Voice at the Robert Service Cabin. Charlie has had a bit of a rough ride from people who assume that he had something to do with ousting his predecessor, Tom Byrne, but Charlie says it's just not so. By the time he'd decided to bid on the job, Byrne had already made it clear he wasn't bidding. Besides, Charlie likes the deal he's won from Klondike National Historic Sites and is full of praise for the way they're maintained the site over the years.
