Tidy Cupboard – Changes Afoot

Posted by on: Friday, Jul. 1st 2016 12:36 AM

As you will all know, for some time now we have seen a drop in the number of players in the Tidy Cupboard. This has continued for a while now and David and I have made a decision to change things around a little.

Rather than lose the room completely, something we don’t want to do, we’re going to try and revive it. How we plan to do that may sound a little odd but there is a method in our madness. However, it does mean that from 1st August 2016 the Cupboard is only to be open on the 1st Tuesday of every month.

Loyalty Rewarded At Tidy Bingo

Posted by on: Monday, Apr. 4th 2016 2:47 PM

As regulars at Tidy Bingo will know, the network offers a loyalty reward scheme that sees you earn extra bonuses, cash back etc. as you rise through the ranks. As a little something extra, we’re going to introduce a form of loyalty scheme into the Tidy Cupboard too.

As you will have noticed, player numbers have been dropping of late in the Cupboard and as such, it doesn’t remain viable to keep giving away as many loyalty points as we have been whilst player numbers diminish.

Tidy Bingo Up For Best Jumpman Gaming Bingo Site

Posted by on: Monday, Apr. 4th 2016 1:23 PM

The Which Bingo Award shortlist has been announced today and once again Tidy Bingo has received a nomination. This year there isn’t a Best Boutique Bingo Site, the category we usually find ourselves in. For 2016, we have been nominated as Best Jumpman Gaming Bingo Site and for the first time since we launched, we’re going to put a bit of effort into winning.

It’s not that we don’t want to win, of course it isn’t, but we are always competing with brands we have bigger budgets and more players so it often feels like we are a non-starter. This year however, only five of the brands under the Jumpman Gaming hat have been nominated so our odds of winning are slightly better!

Catchphrase Competition – March 2016

Posted by on: Thursday, Feb. 25th 2016 1:29 PM

Can you believe it’s nearly March already? It seems like only yesterday that we were running Christmas competitions and rummaging in Santa’s Sack! Anyway, as the year rolls on, it’s time for another Catchphrase competition and your chance to win a selection of Tidy branded goods, maybe some Help For Heroes bits and bobs and even some bonus funds!

This time we’re going to do things a little differently (not much) and will be sending the competition by internal mail, external mail and posting on Facebook. We’re hoping this gets more people involved and who knows, with enough entries – we might even throw in a few extra prizes!

Ham And Egg Cups

Posted by on: Sunday, Jan. 24th 2016 5:36 PM

As some of you may know, I’m currently with Slimming World trying to shed a few stone. If you’ve never done this diet before then it’s worth knowing that foods are divided into categories and it is actually the only diet that I have done that I have found really easy to stick to. The only thing that I am not completely comfortable with is the weekly meetings, and whilst I know many get a lot from the meetings – they don’t really do it for me. If any of you guys want to slim along with me – feel free. I lost 6.5lbs in my first week….

That said, I have paid for 10 sessions, so I will do those and then probably just continue alone at home. Anyway, I digress, the reason for this blog post was to share one of the recipes that I made today, one that I really enjoyed and takes hardly any time to make. It’s a free food, so you can eat as many of these as you want.

Free Jackpot Game – The Outcome

Posted by on: Saturday, Jan. 23rd 2016 9:50 PM

I thought that I’d sit in the room and watch our biggest every free game take place tonight, the big £1000 jackpot. I wanted to see who were winners, and of course, report the outcome to all the Tidy Bingo players who were otherwise engaged.

In total there were a whopping 4,437 when the game got underway and I was on tenterhooks (as I am sure the players in the room were too).

Thank You, Thank You And Again, Thank You

Posted by on: Tuesday, Dec. 22nd 2015 7:38 PM

There are many things that I love about Tidy and for those of you that know me, you’ll know that it has always been a dream of mine to run my own bingo site. From player, to host, from host to writer and then writer to site owner, it took me ten years to get here but I did.

There have been ups and downs, as our blog readers know, but one of the biggest ups happened this week. Quietly beavering away in my office, the doorbell rings with a delivery…..

Christmas Present Ideas – Blog Two

Sunday, Oct. 26th 2014 12:39 PM

Today’s Christmas present Idea blog has been created using Very.co.uk, a catalogue with which you can either create an account and spread the cost or you can pay instantly. I’ve shopped with Very for years and delivery is quick and, should you need to return any items, their returns policy is simple and easy.

In this blog I have concentrated on the 3 for 2 offers that Very have on offer for Christmas gifts at the moment and created two different sections for you. There’s £5 and £10 sections but do remember, Very have much more to offer than just the six gifts I have listed in each section. I simply picked a handful to give you an idea of what is available, I would have been here hours scouring the site otherwise.

Christmas Present Ideas – Blog One

Tuesday, Oct. 21st 2014 11:18 PM

In the Tidy Cupboard this evening we were discussing the overall cost of Christmas and how it seems to get more and more expensive each and every year. I’m one of those people who tries to spread the cost over a few months and usually I’ve started present buying in August. I know, kill me know! After chatting with roomies tonight we came up with the idea of a blog post once a week that lists 10 cheap and cheerful gifts – nine will be £5 or less and one that will be slightly more expensive but no more than £10.

This week most of the ideas come from Studio 24, and online catalogue style store. You have a couple of options, create a credit account and pay the minimum each month or simply pay it all off the minute your bill shows.

Second Donation Made To Help For Heroes

Monday, Oct. 20th 2014 3:55 PM

As a player at Tidy Bingo and someone who reads our blog the chances are you will be well aware of how Tidy and The Troops works and what the promotion is all about. Bear with is though, not all players have been with us since we launched in August 2013 so we will explain a little more.

Tidy and The Troops is a special promotional game that plays every Tuesday night at 7pm. Tickets for the game cost just 25p each and the jackpot if guaranteed at £50. Rather than keeping any profit over and above the jackpot that may or not be made on the game, Tidy Bingo have opted to donate all proceeds from ticket sales over £50 to Help For Heroes (the maths is that we need to sell 200 tickets to create the jackpot, anything over this is added to the kitty).

Match Report – Rockets vs Tigers – 19/10/14

Sunday, Oct. 19th 2014 4:46 PM

The Ripon Rockets vs Tigers match reports has been written today by Joanne Binks. Old habits die hard and, as usual the Rockets got off to a slow start, finding themselves behind at the end of the first quarter. A change of ends signalled a change of speed, precision and accuracy for Rockets. The attack fed the circle with ball after ball. Both Ann(GA) and Rachel(GS) consolidated with a flurry of goals giving the Rockets an impressive lead.

Not wanting to be outplayed Tigers came out like caged animals after half time challenging for every ball, but the Rockets defence proved too strong causing Tigers a raft of indecision and unable to get the ball into their attacking circle.

Match Report – Rockets vs Spartans – 12/10/14

Sunday, Oct. 12th 2014 8:40 PM

Hi Tidyers – Rachel here, Captain of Ripon Rockets. Today we played Harrogate Spartans – a team that we played last season and only just beat on two occasions. However they have seen a change in players since last season, a second team has been formed.

We were expecting an easier game today after last weeks tight game. We did have to re-shuffle things as we have a shooter out for 6 – 8 weeks after tearing a tendon in her finger in last weeks game and another player unable to play.

Match Report – Meteors vs Halos – 12/10/14

Sunday, Oct. 12th 2014 6:46 PM

Helen here with another match report for the Ripon Meteors.Well this morning’s match didn’t go as planned. A breakdown in communication (read between the lines – I am being diplomatic!) meant that I had to umpire instead of playing – it is better to lose than to forfeit – so we had to play with six.

Superb defending once again from Ashley and Helen kept us in the game while Nicola valiantly played both a Centre and a Wing Defence, marking two people, running everywhere, taking some amazing interceptions. As one of the spectators from the other team commented at the end of the match ‘Your Centre worked her t**s off!" and she did.

World Smile Day Jackpot Results

Sunday, Oct. 5th 2014 10:26 PM

On Friday the biggest jackpot game at Tidy Bingo since we launched on 21st August 2013 was played and we thought you might be interested to hear about the winners of the game and how Tidyers in general faired. If we are honest, there wasn’t that many of our players who even bothered buying a ticket so we’d be interested to hear what it was about the game that didn’t get your bingo juices flowing?

Was it the price of the tickets or did you just believe, as a networked game, that you had little chance of winning? We’d love your feedback please.

Match Report – Rockets vs Raiders – 05/10/14

Sunday, Oct. 5th 2014 5:56 PM

Hi Tidyers, Helen here – Nickie’s friend and Wing Attack for the Ripon Rockets, just a quick run down on our first match ‘played. It was an explosive start for the Ripon Rockets who were playing rival team Ripon Raiders. This is the first time these two teams have met as Raiders, last season, were playing in the division above.

The first quarter we totally dominated the game, with some superb play from every member of the team coupled with some amazing shots by our shooters, sadly our Goal Shooter took an injury towards the end of the first quarter resulting in her having to sit out for the next quarter. But it was an excellent end to the first quarter with Rockets taking the lead by 9 goals to 2.
