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…..

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.

Match Report – Rockets vs Unicorns – 28/09/14

Tuesday, Sep. 30th 2014 10:23 PM

Our Rockets match v Unicorns (always a tough fixture) was cancelled. Unicorns could not get a full team together and forfeited the match so Rockets get the points. Next week Rockets are the only team with a fixture where they will come up against the other Ripon team, Ripon Raiders. They have just been relegated from the first division so this could prove to be a telling fixture. Comets and Meteors have a well earned rest! More next week…

Match Report – Meteors vs Sapphires – 28/09/14

Tuesday, Sep. 30th 2014 10:21 PM

Hi Tidyers, Helen again! This week’s match saw Meteors against Sapphires. This is an up and coming team getting better all the time and although we were confident of a victory we could not afford to take anything for granted. Once again I took a quarter to settle into my shooting – as an excuse I came straight onto court after umpiring for our Comets team and had no chance to even put a few shots up before the whistle blew for the start of play.

This was the first time we were playing as the team I had planned at the start of the season. Helen Walton hotfooted it back from Masham Sheep Fair to play Goalkeeper and the relationship between her and Ashley Anderson as Goal Defence just gets better and better. They are both reasonably tall which is always good for a circle defence unit, both jump well for rebounds and implement the netball law of ‘Give and Go’ – always offering support to one another.

Match Report – Meteors vs Comets – 21/09/14

Sunday, Sep. 21st 2014 7:16 PM

Hi Tidyers, Helen here – the coach for the netball teams that Tidy Bingo sponsor. Today was Ripon Meteors’ first match. On the way to Ashville we had a shout out on BBC Radio York. We proudly put on our sponsored bibs which only arrived on Friday – great timing. Only seven of us could play today so we knew we were in for a full hour’s play and we were determined to get the season off to a fine start by hopefully notching up a victory.

In the first quarter it all went horribly wrong – the other team scored first which was ok cos they had the first centre pass, but then they scored on our centre pass and again on theirs. We hadn’t settled as a team at all – passes were awry, my shooting was abysmal, our GK hurt her knee (remember we had no reserves!) By the end of the first quarter we were 5 – 10 down. Eeeek.

New Ripon Netball Team Name – You Decide

Tuesday, Aug. 26th 2014 2:06 PM

Poll Closed; the new netball team will be called the Ripon Meteors.

Although we are a little behind with the poll to decide the name of the new Ripon netball team, the second team to join the Ripon Rockets with Tidy Bingo sponsorship, finally we have whittled it down to just five choices. The new name will be chosen by you the Tidy players, simply read on and click your choice of name for the new team.

There were plenty of entries, some of which we couldn’t possibly use (thanks Voddi_N_Redbull) but between the coach and I, we have found five that we like the sound of best. The vote is also being opened up to the team members too, after all they will be the people playing under that name.

Ripon Rockets and Ripon ________ Competition

Thursday, May. 15th 2014 1:39 PM

Tidy Bingo are pleased to announce that following discussions with a local netball team we are now the proud sponsors of the Ripon Rockets Senior team. More can be read about the sponsorship on the dedicated page on our blog (click here). We actually sponsor two Ripon netball teams but the second is newly formed and has yet to be named. This is where you come in….

As part of the sponsorship deal we have a unique competition for Tidy Bingo players, the chance to name the second team. To do so it is worth noting that there is a certain theme running through the teams – we have the juniors who are the Ripon Comets, another team that are Ripon Eclipse and of course, Ripon Rockets. This theme needs to continue so when you are thinking of submissions, think universe, think explosions….
