Thanks for all the responses... Not sure why I didn't think about CFLs before, but that is a great idea!

That will really drop the load down and enable me to tie on to an existing timer (currently only pulling less than 3amps)

Dug and set the pole bases this weekend, ran long 90 conduit elbows and 1/2" imbeds for the poles...

After getting out there and doing some planning, it looks like the power will feed the middle lamp first and then split out from there.
I'm gonig to plan on using CFLs and running #10 wire...

Thanks again for the input...

Yes, blowmolds mostly - but also about 3 dozen inflatables
I couldn't find local stores that carried a lot of the blowmolds, so I have ordered a truckload the past 2 years - selling off the extras
