I went to menards and bought 18- 16/3, 25' outdoor extension cords for $3.00 each, cut the male ends off of 16 of them, and the female ends off the other two. This way, they act as their own extension cords. I mounted the board into a metal box. I can go about 25' from the outlets to the box, and another 25' to each light's cord. The whole thing coils up and stores in a plastic tote.

You might want to consider using heavier cords for the inputs. At least #14, #12 preferred.
