Campy 9 speed RD around Missoula? [time sensitive]

Sorry to post this outside of the ISO section but if anyone has a 9 speed campagnolo rear deraillieur around wetsern montana my friends are touring across the states and have a broken veloce deraillieur.
Any aid around the area would be appreciated, they are stuck until this can get fixed and the only campy parts they can find in town are 10s. I think they are set to leave Missoula on monday (possibly minus a rider) to maintain their schedule.

PM me with any questions.
Much thanks to anyone with leads in the area.

Are you sure a 10s RD wouldn't work? I don't know for sure, but sometimes you can get away with this kind of stuff.

Some info here:

If the previous derailer has "9 speed" written on the faceplate, a 10sp derailer or later-style "9 speed" derailer are the only choices.

Earlier 9-speed Campag derailers share geometry with the 8-speed derailers, and are distinguished by having their B-tension screw at the mounting pivot bolt instead of at the cage pivot.
