Germany: Wurzburg Kiliani Volksfest: please help with translation

I would like to make a reservation at the beer tent during this festival.

Not having been to this festival, I'm just wondering why the reservations can be made no later than 5 or 6 pm?

Perhaps they are then at capacity, the entertainment starts, so nobody leaves?

Thanks for your help.

Sorry, in my excitement, I forgot to post the link to the reservation form:

Another scenario might be that the 5 or 6 pm just means if you're there, their reservation office closes at that time?

Reservation times: Thurs and Fri by 17:00., Sat to Wed by 18:00.

Herewith I make a binding order for seats in the Kiliani beer tent

Day of week ...
the ... July 2008
at ... o'clock for ... (number of) guests
First name ...
Name ...
Company ...
Street ...
Zip code ... City ...

E-mail ...

The part in red is important:
Please observe:
This reservation is only binding for company Müller-Reichart if it is confirmed. (In other words: carry a printout of their confirmation mail or fax.)
Fields marked with a * are obligatory to fill in.

Please print this form for yourself and send it to us with a click on "Senden"
or per fax to 0931-72969
You'll receive our confirmation soon after.

Why that early? They don't want their tables to remain empty while they have to turn other people away, I guess.

Thanks, quokka, for your reply.

I sent my form in by fax, so I hope to hear a reply next week.

It's still confusing to me why no later reservations.

Perhaps all the later slots are taken.

Whatever. It is what it is.

Thanks!

Later all seats will be taken anyway, every day. If you make a reservation, you just keep others from sitting there and consuming food and beer.
