NFC wedging via Bluetooth

Specs: Windows 7, Lenovo R500 / 2 GB
I time road races and want a fast sure way to identify finishers. I have successfully used NFC 'tappy' cards but only by a very tricky to manage USB wire. I have already done this by bar code and keypad but they not as sure as NFC.

I want to "wedge" these NFC card reads via Bluetooth. Is there a device that will send NFC card reads to the cursor location?

I'm definitely no expert, but as I understand it, NFC (near field communication) devices only have a range of a few centimeters. Is that the proper technology to be using?

The range numbers are about right. A little more explanation: runners have gotten used to walking away "un-hassled" by having someone grabbing their bib to pull a tag or having to fill out a card. An NFC tap is much surer than either trying to spike tags, keypunch in bib numbers or acquire and xmit a barcode. I have tried all of these. Problem I have with NFC is the wire. If you could bluetooth it like barcode and keypad, it would be great.
